This technically isn't my first manual, as I bought a '96 Ford Escort 5 speed once on a lark a couple years ago (it was only $800 or so).. but I only drove it like twice before I moved and got rid of it, and I was an extreme noob with it. I've driven a couple other manual cars as well here & there.
But yeah, this is the first manual I'm driving extensively. I appreciate all the tips & help in this thread. It only took me a couple days to get comfortable with it, but since then I've gotten exponentially better still.
