Word. My uncle has an 07 350z and the clutch is horrendous. Nevaragain.jpg. I always thought he didnt know how to shift properly because it was so jerky when I rode with him. But then I drove it and now I know. OP you found out how high the engagement is so now just practice.

65 dollar fill up hurt this morning especially at only 300 miles.

I was filling my wife's Mazda 3 Skyactiv for 45 bucks max at 380 miles, talk about a reality check.

my WRX is not luxury, just raw power, and I'm paying about the same at something ungodly like $4.20 a gallon...good thing is I'm averaging 22mpg with it cause I drive like an old woman.

I don't even think my miata gets all that great mileage lol. Not the way I drive at least.

more like 0% post, since that's the percentage of chance I'll ever run e85, ever, in my entire life.

It could be worse. Relatively speaking a lot of countries pay more than us, we are toward the cheap end.

Question to those who have a manual car with a drive by wire throttle. Is it just me or is there a lag between letting go of the gas and the engine actually responding?

I have noticed that in order to make the shift from 1 - 2 smooth I actually have to release the gas pause briefly(to unload the drivetrain) and then clutch in. Otherwise it feels like the clutch isnt releasing smoothly.

Maybe its in my head but I never had to do this with the miata.

Welcome to the ecu that thinks its smarter than you. I rip that **** out of the ecu on any dbw car I own. Of course I've only own dbw cars from subaru or gm so I could do that. Does nistune support the g37? If not I think you're **** out of luck.
