Boxster manual trannys are pretty easy to drive, no real gotchas. Just a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • If you stall it, you need to turn the key all the way back to off and then try to restart it - it won't run the starter again if you don't
  • When the key is all the way off the steering locks! So don't try to restart it unless you're going perfectly straight or have stopped/pulled over already
  • You have a lot of power on tap. If something starts going wrong with a shift, esp. when starting off, push down the clutch and then try to figure out what's up. You'll never get in trouble if the clutch is in (down to the floor).
You're going to love it. And you may never go back to driving an automatic afterwards...
