    Absolutely in love with this thing. I was a little hesitant about the A8, I always believed in it I was just afraid the chorus of people who said "I can't believe you didn't get the manual" would be right. They were wrong. This has to be the most amazing transmission in anything ever. I'm really just speechless, but I'm sure you all understand. :p 20160309_162025.jpg FB_IMG_1457535087815.jpg

    The wait is incredible, the results are phenomenal, every time you drive the car you will have a blast. Every time I drive my car it is like being on vacation without a care in the world, nothing else bothers you it's a great feeling

    I get that sometimes mostly from people who obviously don't know any better. I was learning how to power-shift on my way to high-school when most of those people were itches in their daddy's shorts.

    And why would I want the most powerful American car made to be slowed down even the slightest either (and that is nothing against the manual guys here-it is a personal choice just like the pistol you carry)?

    They can talk tranny trash, until they have a ride, then that stuff stops quick. Put it in track mode and romp on it. Congrats on the car enjoy it.

    Congrats Dude. I still feel like a kid at Christmas when I take the cover off my car. I have the Sublime so it just hits me in the face when I see that green glow. Nice B5 though. The A8 rocks. Enjoy and be careful.

    It just depends on your intended use.

    M6 = most fun on the street
    A8 = best performer at the track

    Yeah I have to agree... the A8 is spectacular! My last SRT was a M6 and I do miss rowing my own... but I quickly forget as the 8A just performs so well when matched with the might Cat! ;)
