Just my .02.

A few points I though of are

- Think of all the people who cant drive standard who drove it
-Think the idiot teenagers who probably dropped the clutch from 5000RPM or were slamming gears in it.
-Who knows if the dealership changed the oil at 5K [it has 12000KM on it now]

The one that worried me most was the people who cant drive standard..they could **** up the tranny, right? and I am definetly going to have this car for a while, so how long the drivetrain lasts is very important.
