6spd. I wouldn't have bought an automatic unless it was an 06 and under $10K lol. Even then, I wouldn't really be happy about it. I love my gas mileage, my fun factor, my engine control, winding out the gears and banging through them on acceleration. My car LITERALLY puts a smile on my face. LOVE the goat.

A4, with city driving I can't stand to be killing my clutch and pressure plate with all of the unnecessary shifting especially during rush hour

A stock 350HP '69 GTO with a modified TH400 auto. The thing shifts very hard.
I would love to convert it to a 4 speed like my other two GTO's from my past but it wouldn't be cost effective for me.
I have to admit that I love how much torque a Pontiac engine makes. The car leaves 3 feet of rubber going into 2nd gear.

All of my cars are stickboxes. Automagics are for people who have the money to keep getting them fixed.

MAN PEDAL for me. And yes, the stock shifter sucked. Easily fixed.

M-6 but it's not my daily driver. Wouldn't want to spend much time in traffic with the six. You can't beat a manual for fun when you're in the mountains but I agree the stock shifter lacks feel. In fact, it's the sloppiest manual I've ever owned and that includes four Mustang GTs, an MGBGT, a Porsche 911 (early era with the long shift handle), an Alpha Romero (pretty damn sloppy), an XKE, and a Fiat 124. Hell, even a 3-speed on-the-floor Toyota Land Cruiser ('74) I owned had more feel than the GTO. All that said, I've never had a car I liked more. I'm just cautious when shifting quickly (rarely) and especially from second to third. If there was a good shop in my town, I'd have the Ripshifter installed.
