Considering purchasing an MT car. What will my second car in my life be ...! ??

MT (manual) ride

Riding the MT Porsche

From my husband a few weeks ago

I have sports cars such as 911 and Boxster in my house, but I haven't been riding at all recently. "Why don't you try riding today?Even if I say "No, yeahI didn't get on at all. Why?

It was said.

About thatI wrote an article the other dayHowever, after giving birth to the third child, as before, "I want to ride a sports car and run windingI couldn't quite get the feeling.

There is also Corona, and I think that the fact that the thinking circuit became "defensive" rather than "offensive" when the child was still small had an effect.

However, in response to what my husband told me, "I have more time to raise my child than before, and when I can ride it, I wonder if I can get in a sports car.I tried riding the MT 911 GT3 before farewell and driving the MT Boxster GTS on a sunny day, but the time to ride was about 15 minutes each time, but it was quite fun. It was.

Moreover, MT was even more so because it was fun to control the car by myself.(Leave good and bad driving)

Boxster GTS (MT)

And gradually I started to think like this.

Should I buy my own MT car again ...

MT car again

About 2 years ago.Purchased BMW 320i (MT), the first car in my lifedid. I lifted the AT limitation about 6 years ago, but even after 3 years, I couldn't drive the MT Boxster GTS at home.

And "If you don't buy your own car and ride it every day to practice, you won't be able to ride it forever!I decided to buy it.

If I buy it myself, my budget will be quite limited, so I consulted with my husband and searched for various things, so I bought a used normal 320i for about 2.4 million yen. Immediately after the car was delivered, the engine stalls were repeated, but as I got on every day, I became able to drive on any road as it was.

And last summer, I will not be able to drive a car for a while before giving birth, and it seems that there will be more opportunities to ride other cars after giving birth.I have decided to let go of my first car in my life, the 320i.

since then"MT cars were fun, but AT cars are easier and more comfortable.The desire to ride an MT car has almost disappeared, but as I've been riding MT cars in a row these days,

It has rekindled ...

And to my husband

I've been riding an MT car recently and it's really fun, soI'm thinking of buying an MT car myselfHmm. I can't afford Porsche yet because of the budget, but I wonder if there is a sporty model that can be bought at a reasonable price.

When I consulted with

Well, Volkswagen Golf or BMW M Sport ... I think you can take this opportunity to see a domestic car. Let's look for various things.


Then, the couple checks the car sensor on a daily basis and goes to the dealer for a test drive on the weekend, and now they are in the process of considering a candidate car.

In my sense, "With this flow, I'm sure you will buy it.I hope I can introduce it on my blog when the car is delivered again.


"Porsche came to my house" caretaker, mother of three children. Until a few years ago, I was not interested in cars at all, but when my husband bought a Porsche, I learned how wonderful Porsche is ...

    I'm looking forward to choosing a new MT car.

    I own a 5.9L, 3.8L, 1.2L all NA engine MT car. If you limit the situation to general roads and focus only on MT operation, the 1.2L engine is actually the most fun. I like the powerless engine because it can be stepped on the accelerator and does not run if the shift change is skipped.

    My personal interests are Swift Sport and Renault Twingo (same RR as 911).

    I don't think the car model is correct, but I'm looking forward to the sequel to the MT search.

      > I own a 5.9L, 3.8L, 1.2L all NA engine MT car.
      Oh, a wonderful lineup ...! I really envy you.
      As you said, the 1.2L engine looks fun!
      It seems to be really fun to be able to step on the accelerator or to operate it properly by yourself.

      > My personal interests are Swift Sport and Renault Twingo (same RR as 911).
      My husband also said that I was interested in a good car!

      I would like to consider various things widely and decide my next car ^ ^

    Hello! I am always looking forward to seeing you.
    In this article, "I'm with me!" 』And w
    I also lifted the limitation a few years ago, but I was a little overwhelmed by the S660 (MT) owned by my husband at that time, and I had few opportunities to ride it. ..
    I knew that this wouldn't improve my MT forever, so I ended up buying a roadster myself last year lol
    Still, sports cars need a lot of energy to drive, so I still ride only 2.3 times a month. I really want to ride more, but I'm still not used to my body (^^ ;;
    But the Roadster is really easy to drive (as a sports car), so I recommend Mina to choose her favorite car lol
    Choosing a car is fun ♪

    • MinaMina

      Thank you for always seeing the blog!
      It's exactly the same situation as fay-san (laughs)! !!

      Certainly, sports cars need to be enthusiastic to ride ^^;
      I know it's fun to ride, but it doesn't feel like it's easy to ride, especially with MT ...

      Roadster, if you don't need to carry children
      I think it was the absolute first choice><It's a really good car! For the time being, I'll consider various things and worry about it ^^; Thank you for your continued support!

    Hello Mina,

    It's the most fun when you're choosing.

    The number of MTs has decreased to the point where it seems to be an endangered species,
    I am glad that the number of MT friends increases.

    I also buy AT for my family, but all my cars are MT.
    The current two are also MT.

    The roadster, GR Yaris, and WRX-Sti are recommended domestically.

    Roadster should be 1.5L or new 2L (early 2L is not recommended).
    If it is 1.5, the number of balls is large and I feel that it is easy to buy.
    However, I wonder if there is another open 2-seater ...

    GR Yaris is also recommended, but I think it will take some time to deliver.

    I also had the WRX-Sti, but I wanted to keep it if I could afford it.
    The feel of Getrag is similar to the current Porsche MT, so I think you can ride it without any discomfort.

    By the way, the reason why the 964 tire does not slip in the previous article is that the rubber of the tire is considerably more than 30 years ago.
    I think it's a big thing that it's getting better.
    If you are not good at it, the performance of the current eco-tires may be better than the high grip of those days.

    • MinaMina

      Thank you very much.
      When I started looking for MT cars, I thought again that there are really few MT cars.
      The number of MT cars that can be bought with new cars is decreasing.

      > The roadster, GR Yaris, and WRX-Sti are recommended domestically.
      Thank you! There are many domestic sports cars that are fun and wonderful.
      I'm really worried ...

      That's right for the 964 tires!
      When I asked my husband, it seems that the tires are about 2000 years old, and the performance is still better than the ones 30 years ago.
      There are various factors in the car, and the driving changes, so it's deep ...!

    Good evening, I always enjoy reading my blog.

    It's sad that the number of cars that MT can select every time you transfer is decreasing, but
    Among them, I am glad that the number of MT friends will increase!

    Among the MTs I've been transferring, the PEUGEOT 406, which has a supple suspension called a clawfoot,
    I think I should have left the MT of the MINI JCW (R56), which was fun even with a jerky horse, now.

    As you say,
    Lightweight sports like Roadster and Swiss Po
    It's fun to change shifts while turning the engine, and I think you can enjoy it more than you feel when you're riding an MT!
    Personally, I think MINI MT is also fun.

    I hope Mina finds a good car that she likes!
    I'm looking forward to blogging!

    • MinaMina

      Thank you!
      I'm glad to see your blog all the time.

      The number of MT cars is really increasing ...!

      If I ride, I don't need that much displacement and
      I think it would be nice to have a sports MT that you can easily ride on, so
      I would like to expand from the candidate cars so far and search for various things ^ ^

      I will post it on my blog again!
      Continue to thank you.
      (I also confirmed the message to the blog, thank you for taking the trouble!)

    Good evening, I'm a Mazda Roadster (ND type) running on the Venus Line (I also use it for my daily commute).

    How about a roadster?

    My roadster is 1.5L, MT, but the clutch is easy to connect, and the feeling of shifting is a pleasant feeling and it feels fun just by shifting operation.
    A fast car like Porsche is good, but I think that a car that pursues fun like a roadster is hard to get tired of. It's not fast, but you can feel the goodness gradually. It's been less than two years since I delivered the car, but whenever I get on it, I mutter in my heart, "It's a good car ..." lol
    It's been 30 years, so there's a good reason. I hope you will take a test drive once. A world-class masterpiece
    The design is not flashy, but it is beautiful.
    The first roadster with a cute Litra is also an ant

    Or if you are aiming for Porsche, it may be good to say "Let's enter the world of Porsche for the time being!" With 986 Boxster, 996 type 911 etc. lol

    • MinaMina

      It's great to be able to run the Venus Line on the Roadster ...
      There are many narrow roads in Kansai, so I'm very envious.

      Roadster, when I also tried the test drive once
      I thought it was a really good car.
      It was well made, and it was easy to operate the MT, and I remember talking with my husband and wife, "The roadster is the joy of running through! Lol."

      However, in my case, I often carry three children on the move, so
      It will be more than 4 people, so
      If it wasn't necessary, I think I would have chosen the Roadster > <

      > Or if you are aiming for Porsche, it may be good to say "Let's enter the world of Porsche for the time being!" With 986 Boxster, 996 type 911 etc. lol
      Really (laughs)!
      Even though I am aiming for Porsche, I do not know what kind of Porsche I want, so I am straying recently (laugh)
      I wish I could buy this in the future after thinking carefully ^^

    I always enjoy watching my blog.
    I am currently riding a Boxster, but in March I ordered a 911 Cabriolet. The delivery date is around the end of the year, but I can't wait to see it from now on.
    Until now, I have been connecting to BMW, Cayenne and Boxster, but now I am Benz GT4 and Boxster. I think they are all wonderful cars.
    There are many parts that I really sympathize with the conversation content of Mr. and Mrs. Mina.
    I understand.
    Life seems to be my senior, but as a Porsche senior, please look forward to seeing the blog.

    Oops I forgot. Since I live in Oita prefecture, I run the "Yamanami Highway" like a daily routine.

      Oh, that's right! Congratulations! !! !!
      I can't wait for it, I can't help but worry about it every day ^^;
      And the car lineup is insanely nice ...

      > Since I live in Oita prefecture, I run the "Yamanami Highway" like a daily routine.
      Oh what ...! !! What an envy ...! !! !!
      I really envy that you can enjoy Porsche running at any time ...

      We hope to continue our own Porsche life!
      Thank you for your continued support.

    Mr. Mina, husband Hello.

    If you think about it normally, it would be a roadster or a Swisspo, but in a good way it's an unusual house, so it's difficult to predict (laughs).

    I thought that 595 is not bad considering that I usually ride 4 people, but after all it is better to have 4 doors ~

    Considering that you can enjoy driving, you can ride easily, and consider domestic cars, I thought it was GR Yaris.
    However, although it will be used, there was a time when MT was sold to golf 7 gti and R for about 2 years, so
    I will play golf in the big hole! !!

    Even though I didn't say I would buy it, I expected it and enjoyed it (laughs)
    I'm looking forward to announcing the results ~ ♪

      Thank you! !! It's a really nice compliment (laughs)
      The number of MT cars is small, but if you look at the candidates by expanding them to imported cars and domestic cars,
      Every day I realize that there are various cars and I am excited to choose a car.

      I will report on what kind of car it will be on my blog ^ ^
      Thank you for your continued support!

    I was an imported car sales person who happened to meet hiro-san with 991.2 GT3 when I went to Ashi for golf on New Year's Day 2020!

    We expect the car to be purchased, Swift Sport!

    I somehow understand why the dealer's sales do not sell to mina (laughs)

    Since I come to the dealer in Cayenne, I am familiar with cars = I may know more about cars than myself, so I think I will not talk too much.

    As you know, there are various types of dealer sales, such as sales that sell in an atmosphere, sales that convey product knowledge, and sales that sell by the amount of money. Since it is often the case that expensive vehicles cannot be contracted without a relationship of trust, we will collect various information and promote purchases, but
    I feel that the domestic car sales, which sells many car models of around 2 to 3 million yen, are thin.
    I personally think that the cause is that there is a lot of information on the Internet, so the number of people who go to the dealer after checking it carefully is increasing.

    That said, each customer must sell in various ways, and we must firmly convey the appeal of the car, have them like it, and make a solid flow of purchasing. I don't.

    It is true that many dealers have retired (laughs).
    It seems that there are various internal circumstances of the company and store ...
    I will explain about that if I have the opportunity to talk directly (laughs).

    See you in Ashi! !!

    • MinaMina

      Thank you for that section.
      There is such a coincidence ...! I thought ^^ I'm glad to meet my husband!

      I see…!
      As expected, the consideration of those who are familiar with the industry is convincing and educational.
      Certainly, there are various factors such as the price range of the car, the structure of the store, the background, etc ...
      I would love to hear from you directly (laughs)

      Also, thank you for the prediction of MT cars ^ ^
      When we deliver the car, we will report it on our blog ^^

    Hello, I'm a Boxster rider who always enjoys reading blogs.
    It's quite different from the purpose, but what about the RX-7? Lol
    There is a back seat and 4 people can ride lol

    To be honest, it's half a joke, but it's an old and inconvenient car with no balls, but I wondered if it would be interesting to have a good old MT car, which can be said to be the highest peak in Japan.

      I took a look at the RX-7 immediately!
      It's a great sports car! Moreover, it is quite expensive!
      I wonder if anyone can test drive it (laughs) I definitely want to try it!
