Agreed on the idea that it depends on the car, I wouldn't see an AMG with a manual transmission, even though older versions should've ditched that shitty 4 speed slushbox and put in a proper manual instead.
The IS-F is pretty much on top of my do-want list and it comes with an 8 speed automatic that fits the IS-F's attitude perfectly. It's pretty much the only automatic car I'd buy and drive.

Manual just sounds like fun to me, while dual clutch doesn't have that thought to me yet.


Good thing is, I found someone to buy my Impreza next spring ! I'm gonna need a new car soon . Have so many cars on my list to test drive... You guys have any idea how I could get to test drive without having to go the usual dealership way ?

Anyone know much about car alarm systems? Best ones? What to avoid?

I'm thinking about picking one up for my Mustang because I've witnessed people lurking around my car and peeking in when I'm in the city, and I have a pretty expensive sound system in it. I always seem to hear about people stealing cars or breaking into cars purely for the sound system.

Thanks!

Seriously? I thought everyone knew that car alarms are useless by now:

Right. So then what's my alternative? Because I could just shoot the asshole trying to take what I worked hard for. But that wouldn't REALLY solve anything, would it?

honestly, car alarm wouldn't even help you in the event of a break in. they'd have smashed the window, grabbed the stereo, and been gone LONG before someone actually checked on the alarm. they're just a nuisance at this point and people dont pay attention to them.

I drive a mustang too, and I catch shady people checking out the tires way more often than they check out whats inside, and keep moving when they realize i'm rolling on all seasons, rather than the super expensive, fat street radials they think i'd be on you should be way more worried about finding your car on cinder blocks than you should be about someone nicking the stereo, invest in good wheel locks.

Fair enough.
The main reason I considered investing in it all of a sudden is because I'm going on a roadtrip to see a show in October and it just so happens to be in the 4th highest ranked city in the country for auto theft. I'm paranoid, and I don't wanna leave my hotel the next morning to find that my car has been stolen or broken into.
But I decided to pay a bit more and reserved a hotel that has a secure underground parking garage. So I'm not as paranoid now

Also, I remember seeing pics of your Stang. Killer car, man!

^That's the best way to go. Keep it tight in a private garage.

Anyone interested in racing sims? I'm thinking of eventually getting the Logitech G27 with Assetto Corsa.

That's pretty much the way I'd go. On PC ?

I should do this for my car. The BRZ's sound system is pretty bad.

That said, a little bit of hushmat in the trunk and doors was a good investment.
