He waffles a lot, but with his P.O.V. camera you get a good feel for what it's like to drive the manual. @Lakes

He gives it a bit of stick a few times in the video...

I never rev my diesel over 2,800 , thats the hi lux ute. but looked like went well, hard to tell just watching a vid though. as no thrust feeling in the seat.

Being a petrol it is happy to rev, but the DCT (Automated Dual clutch manual) in my car even if you boot it in sport mode you get great performance with it changing at about 4K (he was using unnecessary revs in my opinion) :cool:
