Wut?

Are you serious?

My Ralliart is cheaper to insure over my LX lol, Combined it was $150 a month for the both. Where as before my LX was $80 by itself, my Ralliart is also insured for $20K where as my LX is insured for $15K.

Back on topic, like Aspire said. I rather wait, also think ahead, how you gonna handle the service cost also how you will manage breaking down costs as well, cost for fixing and service on RA are not cheap, in most of the drive lines you have to use only genuine/OEM parts, and if you're not mechanical minded prepare to fork out hundreds if not thousands for labor. I don't want to scare you, but you have to think what options you have "in case if". I've been there and believe me is not fun when things like that happen and you got the bank on top of that as well

Yeah fair points, I was thinking of selling and getting it in manual instead, but maybe I should just wait and pay the loan out beforehand seeing though I just bought the car in November?

Yeah I'd be hopeless if I was rich, 'oh nice car, I want it' would need a very big garage :lol:

EDIT - maybe the insurance cost would be less with a direct quote but I was going by online research... plus at the time a good RA was out of my reach.

Also I should have said clutch peddle, if anyone is gonna stuff up a gear change its going to be me not the computer in the SST!

Pay it out first :) Which works in your favour and then go ahead and buy a manual VRX :)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manual_transmission

Wikipedia help for those that can't figure out that a manual transmission by it's very nature is 'manual' - nothing automatic about it.
The RA is NOT manual, it's SST Is computer controlled and so the transmission falls into the category of
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual-clutch_transmission
And to quote those who can't be bothered clicking to educate themselves:
A dual-clutch transmission, (DCT) (sometimes referred to as a twin-clutch transmission or double-clutch transmission), is a type of automatic transmission or automated automotive transmission.
