    Lots of Advice Requested!

    Alright guys, I haven't posted in a while, but I need your advice.

    I am going to be doing my MBA in USC this fall, and so, I am moving to L.A. for two years starting July. Here are my current dilemmas:

    I have a CTSV here in Kuwait, and shipping to and from California will cost about 6-8$K total and will also put me without a car for ~4 months. So, do I ship, or lease an F30 335i sedan for the time I am there?

    Plus, I am not sure about the driving in LA; is there too much traffic that taking a manual car would be a hassle?

    What are your thoughts especially about driving stick in LA.

    Thanks guys

    Hello,
    Hope you have a good time in LA. If you're a man you'll buy an MT 335i in kuwait and airship it in a $#@!ing cargo plane to LA.
    If you're not a man you'll lease an automatic 335i.

    I can sense the sarcasm but I am not sure which one you are really asking me to choose! Ok, on a serious note, do you drive in LA? How bad is the traffic and is a BMW clutch light? The one on the V is freaking heavy and really takes a toll on me in heavy traffic. Any advice is appreciated

    Yes, tons of traffic. No need for a manual whatsoever and you won't want one once you sit on the 101 at rush hour.

    Just lease some car here and keep your CTS-V in Kuwait.

    You can go the DCT route if you want a little more control than with an AT.
