Back to the subject of manuals.
The manual on the Z feels, for the lack of a better word, manly. It's heavy, although not excessively so and quite knotchy. It's a bit hard to drive smoothly in traffic but once you get the hang of it it works fine. All the gearshift problems though disappear when you're really giving it some. Upshifting can be lightning fast and downshifting is also quite satisfying. I've also yet to crunch a gear (although i did miss second once ). Still working on my heel and toe-ing but revmatching and downshifting is really easy and something i enjoy doing.
So to summarise. In traffic it's challenging but works and when you're really pushing it's very very good.

Its a proper car GA, giving you plenty to do and plenty to learn. Real men dont eat quiche or drive Auto's.
Dont think i've ever tried quiche. It sounds weird.
The Z is shaping up to be an exciting thing to live with. I didnt drive it at all yesterday and today as i've been using my old banger to come to work but that's due to it being much easier to park (not afraid to leave it parked dangerously colse to other cars for example) and the fact that the Z does like its drink (it inhaled a tank and a half in one week). But even so i vowed i wont be one of those Cypriots who buy an expensive machine, be it a sports car or an expensive E-class Merc and only use "the nice car" on the weekends and when visiting friends and family. Anyway nothing to do with transmissions .
I'm thinking about buying a short-shift kit for the Z. Opinions?
