    Finally got it!!

    I finally got a T/A !!

    1999 Silver M6, 85k miles

    Gonna take it out tomorrow so I can learn how to drive it (never had a manual before) .. I tried a little bit tonight but I kept stalling it out trying to move it from a stop... Hopefully I can get it down good by tomorrow.. I'm dying to drive it around n show it off

    It wont take you very long to get good at it. Took me about 1 and half hour to not stall anymore on hills and then spent 30 mins just driving

    well i have the basic idea down.. i know when to shift and how, just gotta get it smooth and consistent... and the hardest thing for me is to learn how to get it going without stalling it .. did it about 8 times in a row

    and no it's completely stock, non ws6.. when i get the money first thing i wanna do is put a ws6 hood on it and get the FTRA set up...

    but for now i just wanna DRIVE!!

    key is on the gas pedal. if you are stalling your car, then that means you don't give enough gas and you pop the clutch. rev that engine to around 1500-2000rpm and let the clutch that way. then it won't stall but this time it might spin but at least it won't stall

    congratz on new car.

    Just be carefull learning on your T/A. They're not as forgiving as some other cars. Plus, you don't want to destroy the clutch in your new car.

    Time for you to start searching the parts section. Congrats on the car and be safe with it. It takes some time to really learn on how to pull the most out of the car with the manual, but you will be very happy when you get to know it well. If you have traction control don't forget to turn that off before you try a burnout!

    yeah, definitely practice going from a stop on an incline. You have to give it more gas than on flat ground and if you are nervous of rolling back too much you can use the e-brake trick.

    Oh come on, 3 pedals and 2 feet on steep hills are more fun than using the hand brake!
