I've had a 5-spd and a 6-spd G2 coupe. The 5-spd is much more fun around town, but I'll take the 6-spd on the highway.

As far as quality of the transmission... I haven't driven a newer Acura product to be able to compare to. I have no problems with synchros, grinding, or anything at 196k on the original transmission and clutch. The shifts are a bit "clunky" for my taste, though. From what I hear, that means I need a tranny mount. I would really like to drive a newer 6-spd Acura and see the difference.

I have had three Prelude MTs (86, 89, 91) so I can relate that they do have GREAT transmissions. They are a riot to drive.
