Something that I thought about the other day, with manual cars, I highly doubt that the dealers, or for that matter, most workshops bleed the clutch which shares the same fluid and reservoirs. I so want to invest in a power bleeder, or vacuum bleeder!!
Bleeding the clutch slave cylinder is a pain in the ass. The bleeder screw is a 5MM and located in such position that you can barely reach it with a wrench and turn it enought to bleed it. I've bled mine, but I have a lift. Doing it on your back I would imagine is impossible.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
