dad bought me an 03 civic ex last week and i'm thrilled about it. i learned how to drive a manual in iran about 2 years ago, and i could drive their cars real well, but the civic is more sensitive than the cars in iran. i practiced driving the civic alot this weekend, but i'm still pretty bad at it. how long did it take you guys how to learn how to drive a manual, and drive well. and can someone gimme pointers on how to handle the accelleration from a complete stop on a hill?
