Probably because nobody wants to commute to the city and deal with parking on hills in a manualWell, I'm trying to find a manual in the color I want. I was set on SI, but now I'm pretty sure I would pull the trigger on a MB, HR, or SS. There's only Black and Adriatic within 350 miles of me. A total of 4 cars to choose from.
But now with May's lease cash incentives and r_spec with the circle certificate, I'm thinking of going full 3.3 Sport now. I want to "save the manuals" but the choice is really limited in NorCal.
Can't agree more. They need to make driving tests harder so everyone with the attention span of a goldfish is weeded outAuto enthusiast are not like they used to be. Getting your license within a week of turning 16 was a rite of passage. Now kids wait a few years but would prefer the latest phone. Drive a stick shift? Never saw one.
Automatic trannys are also pretty darned good today, far from the 2 speed Power Glide of years ago. The real reason to have a stick shift today is just the fun of it. Fewer drivers today care about that. I'd consider it for a second car but no longer want stick for my daily driver.
Hahah it's doesn't help! It's unfortunate, it's clear the way it's going for the future of the manual, I would have loved to bought the manual in the color I wanted but no such luck and time was ticking in my particular situation. I couldn't hold out any longer hoping something would turn up and the current lease incentives added with "R_Spec's" Circle Plan A Certificate made for a good time to buy.Probably because nobody wants to commute to the city and deal with parking on hills in a manual
