Hello from Toronto!

Post by conduit » Sun Nov 08, 2015 4:42 pm


I am a new member and just recently purchased my first manual car, an 05 Audi A4. As this is my first manual car, and I have no one to teach me, I've been trying to learn as much as possible from the internet and youtube videos.

Joined this site to ask questions and read to improve my driving skill and shifting technique and also to make sure I do not get into a bad habit. :)
