    Have a friend or relative teach you. Driving a manual isn't something you can just read about.

    its not that hard. its all hand-foot control basically. best way to learn is on an old beater thats the way i learned.

    i assume you know what and where the clutch pedal is
    im also going to assume you know what and where the gear selector lever (shifter) is
    i will also assume that you know you have to depress the clutch pedal before you move the gear selector, and release it after

    thats 90% of it right there

    starting off is probably the hardest part of driving standard... once you have that down then the rest will fall into place with time

    do not worry about the whole downshifting while slowing thing at this time (most people dont do it correctly anyway)

    work on getting your starts and shifts smooth... the more advanced stuff will come later

    if you can't figure out how to drive stick in less than 15 min, off your self because you're about as smart as paris hilton.

    thanks.

    hey, this just in sparky...

    your B16 is not going to bolt into a car with a Dseries manual trans...

    your auto B16 ecu won't work either...

    you will have to swap in your B16 with the B series auto trans and auto ecu, or you have to get a B series 5 speed, and a manual B16 ecu...

    Title of this thread:

    "Is it hard to learn to drive a manual transmision?"

    Or

    "Any tips for a newbie trying to learn 5-speed?"
