  1. Hi all, I had been away from sg for 3 years. May i ask what is the manual car available in the current market right now? Both new and used car. Thank you.
  2. http://chevy.mrmax.dp.ua/EN/GMDE_TIS_START.html DIYers take note. No need to download.
  3. Heard got some shop in ubi? Any exact add? Long time since i touched one.
  4. .. A day since I collected my Cayman and the feeling of driving a manual really exhlirates me tons. Even more so when the amount of torque that one can gain from 3 onwards is magnificient. Found joy again in driving, cf mundane transport with the auto gearbox. The porker's gearbox is superb and with the sound coming from the flat 6, is just heaven! So, folks out there, would you trade your auto for a manual anytime? What would your considerations be? Fire away
  5. Hi folks, probably feeling a tad suicidal or something but was wondering if any of you here owned fiats before? I saw a listing for a used Fiat 500 manual and got me tingling abit. Was wondering if it is really as horrific as it was thought to have been? Or perhaps in some ways, the drive and ownership is somewhat rewarding? or the tradeoffs perhaps? Some tips of the trade or some some? Any tip would be good. Thanks

    New BMW M3 and M4 to get manual gearbox

    Thankfully, BMW has confirmed that its upcoming M3 sedan and M4 coupe will be available with a manual transmission. As reported by BMW Blog and Carscoops, BMW M Chief Executive Markus Flasch announced the news when he was asked in an interview whether or not there will be any surprises for BMW fans with the new M3 and M4. It’s a bit early to disclose all the details but something I want to highlight is that we will have a manual stick shift,” he said. “We have already disclosed we will have the option of four-wheel drive. We’ve not decided which variant, which system, but everything that’s on our current lineup; think of the M5; can be made available. The M3 and M4, I’ve driven the pre-production cars already and they’re fantastic.” Flaschadded on, “Manual is very important. The manual stick shift is not a performance-bringer, because an automatic transmission is just faster, you can ask any race driver,” he said. “But it gives the vehicle character and I kind of compare it to people who love mechanical watches; it isn’t more precise and it doesn’t have any advantage at all but it’s a character feature. So is a stick shift.” There is no confirmation on whether the M3/4's all-wheel drive system will have a rear-wheel drive mode like the M5, but we would be surprised if it didn't.
  7. Wow!! I just checked a few websites (honda, toyota, kia) on their models, almost none are offering manual transmission?!? I understand that most people will go for the auto, but definitely there'll be some go for manual one. I mean how difficult it is to have an option for manual? Just blardy import the car in as like an auto?? Are there more paperwork?? Mechanic dunno how to service a manual ride?? The factory no longer producing manual transmission?? It's not like they stock up manual vehicles in their showroom and not able to sell (they order then ship in usually). So why they don't even offer it anymore still buffles me. If BMW, Audi, VW, Merc were to offer manual transmission, i'm pretty sure there will be orders for them too. Anyone wanna shed some light??
  8. Kinda sad that it is hard to find nowadays new cars with manual transmissions. Can anyone enlighten if one can still buy a MIT, MIJ or MIK manual transmission sedan?
  9. In an interview with Aston Martin Chief Executive Andy Palmer, Car Sales, an Australian publication, found out that the new Vanquish is likely to get a manual gearbox. Going against the trend, the upcoming mid-engined car will of course get another transmission option but we are pleasantly surprised to hear of another sports car manufacture other than Porsche who would offer a self-shifting option to its customers. That said, Palmer did not specifically say ‘yes’ directly when he was interviewed. “I’ve already made a commitment that I want to be the last manufacturer in the world to offer manual sports cars and I want to honour that commitment,” Palmer remarked. The new car will be using an aluminum platform and a twin-turbocharged V6 with a small electric motor, and while the company hasn’t said how much grunt it will have, you can expect it to have around 800bhp or so.
  10. Last week, we published a post where we reported that two thirds of the Toyota 86s sold in US were automatics. However, Mazda begs to differ with some stats of their own and give the manual transmission supporters some hope. U.S. publication Autoblog spoke to Mazda PR program manager Tim Olson and was told that a staggering 76% of the MX-5 buyers in America selected the manual transmission option, leaving the rest with the six-speed automatic. Being the purer car, the sales data was based on the soft-top version of the car from July 2018. As for the MX-5 RF, 52% of the sales in the past 12 months were made up of stick shift cars while the remaining 48% sold have the automatic gearbox. While the above numbers do proof that driving enthusiasts are still voting with their money for manual gearboxes, it is weird to find Toyota reporting that only 33% of its 86 buyers opt for the self-shifting option.
  11. With more and more brands abandoning the manual gearbox, the amount of drivers being able to drive cars equipped one also lessens day by day. With that in mind, Volkswagen USA thinks that its latest Jetta GLI, when optioned with a manual gearbox, would easily deter thieves. In its latest commercial for the sports sedan, it portrayed the aforementioned idea in just that way. However, while it was cheeky of them to come out with this advertisement, they did put a small line at the end of the video saying, “Legally we have to tell you that you should always lock your car, so you should lock your car." to make sure viewers should only take it as a joke. It is unknown whether the latest Jetta GLI will make it to our sunny shores.
  12. The Porsche 911 GT3 proved that there’s still demand for high-end sports cars with manual transmissions. But why didn't Lamborghini follow suit? Motor Trend posted this question to Lamborghini Chief Executive Stefano Domenicali and he replied saying that Lamborghini did actually researched on whether it made sense to offer manual gearboxes for special edition models of the Huracan and Aventador supercars. Unfortunately, the costs were too high. He went on to elaborate with a case study: if Lamborghini were to build a special edition Aventador with a manual gearbox, cap production to 200 units, and price it $25,000 (S$33,800) above the ‘regular’ Aventador, that would only generate an additional $5 million (S$6.76 million) for the company. It doesn't help that there is no other vehicle in the Volkswagen Group family which it could share a transmission with too. Meanwhile the Huracan might have been able to use the Audi R8's manual gearbox but sadly the six-speeder is no longer produced and again, Lamborghini wouldn’t be able to justify building one from the ground up. Adding on, Lamborghini's researched also deduced that its manual take rate wouldn’t be as high the Porsche GT3 customers' take up rate of more than 50%.
  13. Don't see this thread before but I think it was discussed before in other forums. How do you move off or accelerate in an auto car? Do you 1) jam the accelerator 2) move off slowly, release accelerator, press again and release then press.... 3) light pressing of accelerator until desired speed I believe few will do number 1. But I heard driving instructors teach both 2&3 so lai lai let's discuss. Who do what and why and is it better? We had a thread on manual cars so let's talk about auto cars.
  14. Can I use ATF on my manual car?Wat oil should I use?Driving Lancer
  15. Are they the same? Same effect on starter motor? Something that I have been wondering about.
  16. A few months ago I got this manual accent. No issues with it except for this. Occasionally I cannot engage the first gear or the reverse gear from neutral gear. This happens when my car is stationary. So far no major issue with this except late moving off from traffic light or a bit delayed in reverse parking. I checked with the AD during my 1000 km and 5000 km check and they say nothing wrong and maybe it's how I stepped on my clutch. The thing is, this failure to engage still happens once in a while and in my car park i ever tried to replicate this by changing gear with my clutch not fully depressed half depressed and so on but not able to replicate the failure to engage. So I don't know if it's my fault or there is something wrong with transmission fluid or so on.... So I wondering if anyone ever faced this before and what was the cause. AD say nothing wrong with gear box. I ever thought of going to an external workshop if it happens again but I worry I kenna chopped carrot.

    Wtb swift sport owner manual

    any 1 selling swift sport owner's manual?? thks in advance..
  19. So... Story goes I ordered a study table with shelf from ezbuy. Cheap at $45 and looks decent. The problem is... Item arrived and there's no manual. Too many nuts, bolts, screws whatever of all different shapes and sizes, and I suspect even with missing screws. The unfixed table has been left sitting at my house for the past two months. I don't wanna classify it under the white elephant purchase on ezbuy yet, so, my question is... In such a situation where you have furnitures bought online and unable to fix yourself, are there any contacts we can call to get them to fix for us, maybe even use their own tools etc, and then we pay them for labor? TIA.

  23. Here is an instructional video on how to replace your manual shifter knob. I believe this design is common for most Hyundai models and some other brands in the market. It also helps to understand how you can easily remove the leather blanket of the shifter stick. Very simple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_fyZ9l1nK8
  24. Anybody letting go of their TPS which is in good condition? Otherwise third party TPS reliable or not? Thanks in advance.

    Woman drives Ferrari F40 in heels

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg188vx4JpkSo you can't drive stick? Holding a Class 3A license? This video might just make you feel like a wuss then... This video, which turned up by CarScoops, shows a lady wearing rather large heels get into, start, and drive away in a Ferrari F40. While we haven't driven a Ferrari F40--seriously, will a Ferrari F40 owner please give us a call? We would have to imagine it isn't as easy to drive as your buddy's Mitsubishi Lancer GLX with three pedals. And yet this woman makes it look like a cinch. So, if you can't drive a car with three pedals, watch this video.
