u can take it out of gear while coming to a stop thats not gonna mess it up. but there is no reason to keeping the clutch in if u are coming to a stop. u dont have to down shift either. both ways u said are fine but just dont have the clutch pressed in for no reason

what he said! but I downshift because the engine helps brake... putting it in neutral and braking is putting more strain on the brakes than downshifting while braking, and downshifting and braking will stop faster no doubt.

but you hafta remember that downshifting when slowing down will put ALOT more wear and tear on your clutch and flywheel than just cruising to a stop in neutral. so now you hafta replace your pads and rotors, along with clutch and flywheel.
there's no right or wrong way to slow down, and both of these ways work perfectly fine; i do both of them, just depends on my mood.

When you want to stop keep it in whatever gear you are in and when you get pretty slow press in the clutch and let the brakes complete the stop, you dont need to downshift. That should pretty much be the least amount of wear on your engine if you feel like you have to use the engine and brakes to stop. Otherwise, putting it in neutral and using only brakes would be the least strain on the engine. I hope you can understand that...I hate english class

the prelude manual transmissions seem to slow down faaaaaaaaaast when you let off of the gas, but then again were talking about a vdub,
but always, coast until you have no rom to coast, then apply your brakes or whatever your doing, i hate downshifting and the only time i think about it is when im in need of a slower speed around a corner, then i downshift let her rev down and give her some gas when im around the corner,

other than that i have to say, down shifting FTL!

well, with all due respect...any car with a final drive ratio as high as ours will slow down quickly when just letting off the gas.
