I guess you mean that they were willing to deal more on in stock units, since all things being equal the 5 speed is $1250 cheaper than the "automatic".

I had planned on the auto until I took a demo out for a whole Saturday and realized it was different enough than a regular auto that I would never get used to it. At age 48, I fear new ways of doing things. Although, I pay for radio ( Sirius ), which is something that was just plain ridiculous not that long ago.

When ordering my 5 speed, I suddenly realized I had more money to play with and opted for the sport package (800) and winter package (350) and still came in for a hundred bucks less.
