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.

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.

If it was possible to mate up an A6, I would do it in a hearbeat.
