Why can't they just give you what you ask for? Its not like I was fumbling around and needed them to sell me on something. Im a car guy. I know what I want and I generally know more about the car than the sales people. Lol. I use to work in retail too so I can see right through the BS.

I just wish it was a "6" speed, Ford is a little behind the game on this one.

I love my 2 door 5 speed - I've already put ~20K miles on this car since March and loving every one of them. I'm easily getting 35-36MPG cruising at 75-85mph ~100 miles a day :)

WOW! kinda hard to bust a manual transmission!. You must be banging it around a lot!. I picked a 5 speed as I figured the only thing that would break would be the clutch. What do you do to that poor thing?

I toasted my pass side motor mount right away - my 3L Contour SVT has the same MTX75 in it and, well, yeah - some power shifting is hard to avoid :)

Nothing like rolling posi burnouts in 1st and laying another 25 feet of rubbed banging second... with blizzaks
