Also, now you have a car that looks like a Ferrari but is slower than a minivan.
i felt no big difference between manual and auto of these car till start of 4th gear really... we all drive minivan speed cars?

i feel like a spammer wouldent be sitting here replying, having a discussion. they would just throw it up and leave it there to rot (but that's just my opinion)

I believe that is what a forum board can be used for whether its a company trying to gain traction with a new part or this. everyone advertises. but there are plenty of people who advertise and never get back to a single person.

I bought my auto FRS because we needed a new road tripper. We gave our 6 year old Chrysler Crossfire (with a manual) to our daughter and son-in-law. When it came around to buying the new car, my wife said the FRS was "cute" and that she wanted to drive it too. My lovely wife does not drive a manual, and does not want to learn. So we bought the FRS with the auto. The price was right too - $3000 off sticker. We are going to take it to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons next summer - she will be able to drive it too - I was always the driver on our cross country trips with the Crossfire. I'm happy with our purchase, and I love the car. The paddles are great! And in six years, I can give the car to my oldest Granddaughter who does NOT want to shift. It's a win - win.......
That being said.......I really DO MISS driving a manual. And the next sportscar I buy, will probably....NO....DEFINITELY be a manual. All I'm trying to say, is everybody has their own reasons to buy what they buy. We all have driven manuals, and autos, and we make the decision on our own. In my mind, it's OK whatever decision you make - you PAY THE MONEY! Let's let this person be happy with his decision - OK?

Hey man don't feel bad! I have an automatic 86 as well.
I know how to drive manual but I'm not too good at it and Austin traffic is really really bad so I opted for an automatic.

If you find your left foot being bored might I suggest learning how to left foot brake?

See, there is actually so much in common between MT fanatics and AT lovers. Another commonality is, although they keep arguing what way of shifting is the best, they both hate downshifting.

Downshiftings the best part of a nice exhaust setup though!
