Oh, did I mention everyone learns to drive on manual here?

Well yes, they do. Although the vast majority of cars here is with Automatic Transmission, most people do learn to drive on manual since older cars are fitted with Manual Transmission.

I got a chance to drive around with a manual 2.5TD Wrangler, it was great :)

@troy, what a waste of a good Continental :)

Oh yeah!, well this little car is getting there I'm a DIY mechanic so using the Internet and some skills my father taught me, I figured out what all is wrong with it:
It's running on 2 out of 3 cylinders, and the two that work have low compression (i.e. 80psi)(it should have 130psi) it burns oil so when you step on the gas it lets out a smoke screen hehe and it's got a tire with a leak :)
But the good news is it goes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!! :) :)

Ahhh! Not a bad toy, really :)

Did you improve it yourself? I don't recall the WRX having 380, that is one heck of a beast you've got there.

The CLS, or the first coupe-sedan! I adore that car. Sweet ride :) Wouldn't call that a normal car though.

Tomorrow we're getting a temporary car, namely this:

It costed a bomb, but it's well worth it - has lots of features in it. Still enjoying sitting in that car even if it's already 1 month ++ since he bought it.
