If you want a stick get one, I haven't heard of any of serious issues with AFM, it's a proven technology at this point.

Just keep the royal purple fresh and it should be fine. Maybe in 25-30 years when the engine needs rebuild it will show lot more wear or fail at the more active cyl. Otherwise that's not really a show stopper as it should deliver way over 200,000k without major problem with the block.

Very small number of problems. I don't know how someone so paranoid could stand leaving the house let alone drive a car.
