6 speed manual. More work but more control, better gas mileage and fun!

(I do curse it when stuck in stop and go traffic, truth be told!)

6 speed because I'm a man. But when I'm stuck in traffic and trying to control this unforgiven Textralia twin disc I whine like a little girl and wish I had an auto.

I wanted the PBM M6. But I got such a killer deal on my BOM A4. And for my 3mi. a day commute. the A4 is great.

M6. A necessary, no excuse component, for a muscle car! Sorry Auto's!

I've got the M6, and love it. But I test-drove the A4, and was very impressed, quick & firm shifts, intuitive downshifts, very non-intrusive. Reminded me of the good old days when vacuum did one hell of a better job managing gearshifts than computers programmed by committee....I could've gone either way

She's 16 now, and I got her a 6-banger 5-speed-manual '07 Mustang to drive. She claims the GTO was easier, and she's right... All that smooth low torque makes the clutch-work almost mistake-proof... You hardly even need to use the gas.

Heck, my wife is what, maybe 5' 1"?? And that's generous... She fits the car, drives the car, just fine...

Don't know what you're talking about there....
