I would have loved a manual, however being only 5'2" i would have had to have the seat moved pretty far forward to push the clutch in all the way. Something about sitting that close to the steering wheel in a muscle car would have looked pretty dorky!

I gotten a manual because it always seemed interesting to roll your way through the gears
...
Never driven one before this buy, and it's much better than I've ever imagined.
...
Plus, chicks digs guys who know how to drive a stick properly. At least that's what the movies make it seem like

Auto for now. I went w/ this option for a few reasons. I was shot when i was 14 by a .223 and have about 50% use out of my left arm. I sometimes wish i would have got the M6 but when this time of year rolls around im glad i didnt. Weather affects all the metal in my arm to where some days it hurts to use it.
Also this is my DD.
My next one will be a M6 thow for a weekend car.

I have a manual and I am SICK of hearing these excuses myself!

So much so, that I made a "How to shift at the track" video. I never miss shifts at the track.



I got a manual because while an automatic can be more convenient at times, it's never more fun than rowing through the gears yourself.

The truth is I got a manual to make automatic owners defensive at the mere mention of "manual transmission"
