    Ah alright. Well I don't think I will doing much performance modding anyways TBH. The Ralliart is already 237HP give or take. All I would want extra as of now is a CAI and exhaust. I've seen videos on the twin clutch and the RPMs look really weird, although that thing was hauling in a 0-60.

    Yea, those tranny's shift extremely fast and the dual clutch is what allows them to not drop in RPM's so quickly. Yea, with those mods the Auto tranny would be completely okay. You could even do a tune with those mods and still be okay. In turbo cars like the Evo, Ralliart, and WRX's just a flash to the ECU can give off good gains.

    Just checked the MPG for the Ralliart (should have before I even started anything) not to happy about 17/25. Just doesn't get it done for me considering I could be driving my parents big *** SUV around and get that.

    A friend of mine got a prescription for window tint. Made me laugh, I couldn't believe there was a loophole. He just bs'd that his eyes are sensitive to bright light when he drives and gets migraines, and voila, window tint. Idk what the limit is though.

    Driving stick isn't hard, but it can get a bit annoying if you sit in heavy stop and go traffic every day. I'm really not even considering a manual for my next car because of that.

    Pretty smart. But I wouldn't even want tint that low because it sucks driving at night then.

    Yeah that's half the reason I wouldn't want a manual, at least not for a DD. Also other people might have to drive my car occasionally and owning a manual poses a threat to that.

    So I'm looking to buy a second car in the next few months. I think I'm down to these
    350z
    Mustang (cobra)
    Audi A4
    Any positive or negatives you guys got on these and which is best for just style and a not everyday car.

    Driving automatic is so dirty. Ew. Never again. Think I've driven automatic twice in the last 8 years and that was only while my old car was being replaced and I was provided with a free loaner car till my new one was ready. Driving manual through traffic or rush hour isn't nearly as bad as you guys make it out to be. Driving automatic should be banned. So gross.

    Take the 20-30 minutes or so and learn manual because it's just so much better. Once you figure out how to get out of first gear consistently you're golden.

    But do you drive in heavy traffic every single day? That's my problem. It's not like a once in a while thing. The commute is also 35-55 minutes, so we're talking a long time of stop and go.

    I'm not talking about a once in a while type thing. And yeah, I'm driving through heavy traffic every day.

    Yeah, i don't know why driving stick on a heavy traffic gets so much bad rep. I personally have a higher rate of blowing my head off driving automatic on a traffic jam than driving stick. Getting stuck on a stop and go on a steep hill is a whole different thing. Needless to say, driving manual in a traffic keeps you more awake than driving auto. I live in LA, so traffic jam is like an everyday occurrence. Midnight, morning to evening, the whole day. You name it. I live near downtown too, so whatever road I take will be traffic.
