    Ordered an auto but it seems the manuals are easier to come by. But I don't wanna be shifting all the time in traffic. Ugh

    Then I would talk with your dealer and probably hold out for the auto by the way the auto kicks ass

    It is almost always better---and less expensive---to buy what you really want the first time.

    Nah, get the manual and get it earlier. Or wait until 2017 and get what you want. Come to the dark side young Skywalker....

    I am a Manual Tranny Guy---at least until I drove my first Hellcat!
    Power comes too fast to shift quick enough to keep up!
    Get the Auto

    Wait for the auto like me. The stick with that two foot sloppy Pistol Grip is a slug. Oh wait a minute. Thought is was 1969.

    I like my M6,, I don't care that the A8 is faster. I like to row thru the gears. Wait for what you want.
    But if I drove in heavy traffic and hills every day it would get old.

    I cannot think of any mopar from a collectability standpoint more valuable (manual over auto). There is also the fun factor for stick vs auto.
