You were lucky.My first choice was also an SEL with the manual tranny,but the dealership was charging more for it because they were estimating a two month delivery time and they were reducing the value of my trade in because of that(something I never seen before).Went to another dealership and pretty much got the same BS.Obviously the dealerships were told to sell more Powershift,so I checked the dealerships inventory and bought an SE with the sport package and powershift.In less than a day I discovered a vibration and noise issue on my car between 50 and 80 mph that the dealership and Ford still didn't sort out,and this was 7 weeks ago.Isolated problem or not ,enough people complained for Ford to release a TSB about the issue.And now I'm stuck with a worthless car until the engineers find a permanent solution.
