Now add in the headache of replacing that with a manual trans. It's been done on previous models and imho not worth it on such a new car. Your best bet is to trade it in and take the hit on the depreciation while you still have some value left on the car.
Being that It's such a new car, and the DCT is a $1k option, you'd probably be better off selling yours private-party and buying a 5-speed IMHO.
