Automatics tuned for economy will never be ok in my PERSONAL book.

Performance automatics like VW DSG is a proper driver's automatic w/o going into the big boy brands

Until then...Manual is the way to go. Different people different taste...i'll give up interior gadgetry/outside trim for a proper driver's car anyday

That's what I did. The only manual I could find was an S. Simple but I love it.

I can rev my 5 speed at a red light without having to put the car in N. I can launch at whatever rpm I want to. I can downshift through corners. It makes driving a lot more fun.

Picking mine up either tomorrow or Saturday :)







Had to have Carmax transfer it up from Houston to Dallas...not a single Ford dealership had in new, but I lucked out and found this with only 8000 miles on it. Taking it for a test drive when it comes in and if I like it, I'm buying it!

I bought mine from our dealership, it had the motorsport exhaust,springs, 18x8 wheels and tinted windows already installed. With the 5spd it's really a blast to drive. We have sold several set up this way and currently have a 2012 white 5spd with white 18x8 wheels set up and ready to sell.

I almost went that route. My dealer had two sticks. The one was a SE but it was bright race red which I will never own. The other was a black S. S was too basic for me he found my car at a dealer 130 miles away and trucked it over. I really wanted the kona blue but their wasn't one with in 300 miles.

Unless you were looking for a used car its unlikely that you'd find a brand new 2012 in Kona Blue since the color had been discontinued since the middle of 2011 in the aftermath of the tsunami in Japan.

My little S had 7,900 miles when I bought it. Saved some dough and still got the warranttee. And it was a 5speed :-) win win. I know you will love it. I fell in love with mine from first shift.
