Well it is the internet, so its hard to infer the tone of the converstation.
I happen to like the color more than I like the others, but I would have had a few others to chose from that I would have chosen should I have chosen a different build criteria. If there was a 6 speed manual available with a tall secondary over drive ratio and the same or similar axle ratio to the MTX-75 and the Powershift DCT I might have looked more closely at it. It didn't exist in the US and so the manual was ruled out because at one point I was driving 100+ miles a day every day mostly on the freeway at 70 mph and the driving comfort and fuel economy would be most important at that particular data point. Only now my current commute was cut down to 20 miles or so a day for work at present, so that's not as critical.
Ugh there I go again analizing everything/ describing context and the logic that went into that particular rationalization.
