TL = worries about tranny dropping and killing me

IS = smaller
TL = as long as my dad's truck

IS = RWD
TL = FWD

yeah.. well i wanted to get the IS when i was looking.. but my rents wanted me to get FWD because i lived in Michigan so that left me with the TL
now that i'm back in Indiana, i want to go back to RWD (had a 300ZX before the TL) and definitely want to go back to manual

but i doubt i'll get my way unless my tranny drops so i'll get to keep the TL for a couple more years

oh well.. i'm grateful for what i have, just bitter towards my decision
