I guess I approach a test drive differently... If the experience doesn't sway me one way or another I put it back on the shelf for later evaluation. And I know it's difficult to find a 6MT to test... that is a failing of many, many dealers in the U.S. It really does suck to be forced to test drive a car that doesn't have the options you want.

But, honestly, I still say you should've gotten enough seat-time in a car equipped the way you'd order... not easy to do, but I think it saves a lot of trouble.
