Pros and Cons of manual conversion

After converting automatic to manual transmission, MVS user Japedo shares some first impressions:

-Increased fuel economy
-Drives faster from 0 to 120 km/hr
-Lots of fun to drive!

-The shifter nearly hits the cups in the cup holders when in 2nd, 3rd, or reverse.
-Harder to eat, drink, or text while driving (not that he does this)
-No more cruise control
- The wife has to learn how to drive stick now :)
