I have the opinion that anthing under ~200hp should have a manual to keep the "fun to drive" portion of my driving up. I'm doing so much highway commuting with this car, the 6th gear in the Automatic would be saving me some fuel, and I'm not shifting all that much anyway.

When I was delivering Pizza in the Audi (long story on why I was doing that). The automatic trans there SUCKED. Boring as snot in an already boring scenario. I would've really enjoyed a manual there.
LOL! I'm currently delivering pizza in my focus manual! Short story....extra cash on the side. Only adds bout 400 miles/month on the odometer. I love the pull this car has when leaving it in 2nd or 3rd gear past 4000 rpm
