Thats a pretty long video all about a manual transmission... (look I have to pull a lever AND push a pedal) kind of funny that it has become such a topic these days. Most videos about a car give a short nod to the trans and move on to the rest of the car's dynamics.

In that case, I think the considered that covered in the last video, where they declared the CSL the best M car ever despite the transmission.

Lol, I just got a thread on Facebook shut down because some troll took offense to this article and people preferring the experience of a manual over something that shifts faster.

@ 6:25 my thoughts exactly. But for whatever reason, I’d want to keep the csl as original as possible w/ the smg.
