Good grief, it's like a meeting of the bizzaro Jeremy Clarkson club in here.

I don't believe it can be done in a '13, which is sad because it's one of my favorite things I've done to my '12.

That's normal for a manual transmission. Put it in neutral, let the clutch out, put the clutch in, shift into gear.

For the 2LS vs. 1LS, that's because the auto has higher gearing, making it significantly slower off the line. It also doesn't have a LSD.

With the 1LS, between the LSD, traction control and anti-lock brakes, you'll find that it's not too bad in winter driving with the stock tires.

Only if you're riding the clutch to slow down. If you're just using engine compression to slow, and you rev-match while downshifting, there's no wear on the clutch.

Too funny-- I park my black LS one spot over from a Mustang convertible, and no one parks in between 'em either. It's at the far end away from everybody else, so it's a longer walk.
