I lied, give me Jungle Green Metallic. Mystic Green is too subtle.
Ah, Jungle Green. It's the most exclusive color. Think there's less than 100 of them in the U.S. :)

Re: six's 2015 Chevrolet SS Sedan 6MT

You didn't want to take your top off and show the goods, eh? Do they offer colors? My SS is bone stock, so there's nothing to show haha. And yes, the SS comes in a range of colors, but it seems that most of the people here choose black, silver, or white lol. There were four Mystic Greens, one Slips...

Re: Stick it to The Man: Cars that still offer a manual transmission in 2016

I don't care what they call it, the SS is exactly what I want...a practical (and presumably comfortable) RWD manual V8 sleeper sedan that doesn't draw attention. I wish I could afford one. You've hit the nail on the head, thy holy one, and not to mention, quite a capable handler (unlike its counter...

Re: Buying my first manual

As if you didn't already receive enough encouragement, take it from me: I bought a brand-new 2006 Mazdaspeed6 on a whim, going in with only some knowledge of how manuals work and literally 5 minutes of prior seat time, practiced a bit on the test drive (thankfully they've let me test drive it myself...

I picked up some Hornady Critical Defense at Academy today and haven't had the problem. Looks like I found my new defense ammo!
Second that, I too have Hornady Critical Defense in all calibers I own as home-defense ammo at the ready. :)

Re: Who here shoots? (Gun related)

Yes, sir. That's doing it right. There are two calibers I need to add to my collection: a .357 mag and then a .45ACP. Working on the .357 :) Awesome :) My collection is complete: .40 S&W (Glock 22), .44 Mag (S&W 629 Classic), .45ACP (Kimber Eclipse), and 12-gauge (Remington 870). The only other cal...

Re: Who here shoots? (Gun related)

nyc is bad news. They're known for not even letting retired cops carry. :cry: :evil: Yeah, in NYC, even if you carry a pocket knife, you're breaking the law. That's why I keep on saying, I might live in California, but getting a gun in California seems to be easier than other "gun-control states" l...

Re: Did i burn the clutch ?

If you wanted to test for slippage, you should have just released the clutch all the way all at once. The car should stall immediately. Any other behavior will point to a slipping clutch.

Re: So I've been thinking of getting another car...again

I've also been interested in a couple of other options such as an 04-06 TL , perhaps even a Saab 9-5 . I'd like to get something a bit bigger than my Civic with a bit more comfort . Any thoughts? 1st gen TSX (or the cars you listed) FTW!!!! :twisted: These TLs, TSX and such are so expensive. Like 5...
