Talking Manual or Automatic Transmission w/ your V6??

Hey guys,

Just wondering what you guys ordered with your new camaro, the auto w/ tapshift or just the 6 speed manual. pros and cons on both?

I ordered a 2LT RS w/ the auto tapshift.

The main con the auto V6'ers bitch about is that there no Limited Slip Differential

That's the only con I see, the V6 Camaro is a marvel

gearing in the auto is designed for mpg, not mph, unfortunately. still cool though.

At first I was leaning towards a manual, but if I turn my current daily driver into a manual than I think I will get my camaro in automatic. I like the idea of the tap shift, better mileage, and above all the remote start. But the down side is no factory LSD:(

bluch: It is an option, with the convenience and connectivity package, which also gives you bluetooth and steering wheel mounted audio controls. note that remote start is an auto-only option.

Kind of true. All items from the C&C are standard on 2LT, which is the trim he was asking about. On a 1LT you would be 100% correct though. And yes, 2LT comes with remote start too, if you get an auto.

if you want a manual, teach her how to drive one. that way, you both get what you want!

Limited slip is overrated in my opinion... I have had both and to tell the truth i would rather drive a car without LSD...
But that is just my opinion.
