    Did he call you out for not having the LSX ? Floating around here is a thread linking a youtube video of a Accent. I almost could not stop laughing at watching the high performance section as he raced up to 40 mph in 10 seconds

    I do have access to a car that would be perfect for you to learn on, only problem is that it is in Grapevine.

    At some point I will have to suck it up and relearn cause I think the M6 is the only way to go.

    I was thinking of renting a car with a manual tranny, get the insurance on it so if I f*ck up the clutch it wont be my problem.

    Agreed M6 is very nice. The only reason I really can have my car as a DD is because of the M6.

    You could also go test drive a car that is a standard.
