Eh... I still don't get it. I can't be alone in saying that I would love to buy this car but will not drive an automatic. Most people don't have a 3rd, more focused car to take out when they want to drive a manual. They want to have a practical use car with a naughty streak. Case in point: B7 S4 Avants are going for upwards of $30k with a manual trans. Clearly someone wants it and I'm on that list.
