I know what you mean, I drove an automatic before I got my stick. I thought the auto was cool, but I knew I really wanted the manual. Good thing I waited because the stick kicks ass! Its so much fun to drive thumbsup

I also just recently purchased a 6 Speed GTS, it is freaking awesome. I am in the midst of learning how to drive stick well so there are powers that has not been tapped yet.

I used to drive an Auto GT, so the difference is there, I can feel it.

Yeah, I think, once I get the whole manual driving down as if it is very natural to me. I would never go back to an Auto till I am like 50 or something, heehee.

I say...if you drive an Auto Celica. Stay away from trying out the 5Speed or 6Speed Celicas. You will want to trade the car in for a stick shift.
