    Fast cars are usually associated with fast women. Could explain it.

    I'll have to check into that, the owner's manual doesn't say anything about that feature. In any case we each have our own fob, I normally take mine with me so she can't lose it.

    I am secure enough in my manhood to not be bothered. Besides, I can drive it pretty much whenever I want, and I have a driver mod she doesn't.

    Back in the day the one requirement for becoming Mrs. Minuteman was that she had to know how to drive stick shift especially since almost all my vehicles were equipped with manual transmission. Glad to say Mrs. Minuteman of almost 30 years has fulfilled that requirement. When I met her she had a 95 Firebird with manual transmission and that car was fun to drive.

    White Knight on the other hand has a wife who can not drive a stick shift although he has tried to teach her numerous times with much frustration, if I can't fix his crankshaft tomorrow, to replace the car with another MX5 that she can drive. Depending on your point of view, that can either be a good or bad thing. Enough said.

    Fortunately my wife can drive a stick. She just decided she would prefer an automatic in this car. We have gone from 4 years ago to having all manuals, to having two autos and three manuals (which will be down to two once we sell her 8). She does refuse to learn how to heel-and-toe or rev-match to downshift though.

    I may be wrong but Corvette does that and people were reporting that the car would not automatically adjust to their memory setting and it turned out, they had the wrong fob.
    Speed is just a question of money - how fast can you go?

    In my opinion, that is a good thing.

    It so happened that my wife learned to drive in her brothers car a three speed floor stick and later drove his ford 3 speed on the column. all our cars from 1961 until we retired in 1992 and moved to Florida were sticks. However, in 1993 she said she wanted the comfort and ease of driving an automatic so since then her cars are automatics.
