For the R400, are you guys looking for a heavy racing clutch, or something more akin to the manual transmission feel in a GTI?
My Golf R400 (or Golf R420, whatever they name it) is going to be a daily driver, so I'm hoping the gearbox and clutch feel more like the unit in a new Mk7 GTI. Accurate, not too heavy or too light, with a good amount of clutch feel. Perfect for every day driving.
I'm looking forward to test driving an R400 to make sure it's right for me. Have any of you ever backed out of a car deal because of poor transmission feel?
A few years back, I was all jazzed up to buy a new Infiniti G37S Coupe. I thought the car was just so cool, and loved the idea of 300+ hp and Infiniti reliability. I ordered one exactly the way I wanted and couldn't wait to take delivery.
Then I drove it. Good g-d, what a disaster that manual transmission was. Horrible feel. Vibrating shifter in idle. Just awful. I cancelled right then and there.
