Today me and my younger brother were talking about how fun it is from 60 to 90 mph in 3rd gear and I came up with this out of nowhere... "This car makes my life smile".

"This car makes my life smile" Perfect summary of this car!

Also out of nowhere, I know the AT5 can still be in 3rd at 110...

I sure would like to ride/drive an auto one day just to compare. Looking at the spec numbers, all I really see is a 1.5 second difference in the 0-60 time.

What I like about this gear box is that it's smooth and forgiving in almost any gear. My Rabbit GTI and Jetta GLI would get the shakes if the gear/speed/rpm wasn't matched up right.

I have a question, with the MT does your gas pedal get stiff, like it is at the end of it's movement, but then if you push you get like a little more? Mine stops at like 3/4 - 7/8 of its movement for like normal driving and then that last part is for racing/driving a W8 correctly.

No, not that I've noticed, it moves freely through the whole range of travel. I don't think I've ever pushed it all the way to the floor before though.

Does it do this with the engine off? If yes, I'll test mine with it off but I doubt I ever completely floor it (unless I have a legal and safe test track to go top speed).
