I went with the automatic transmission so my wife can drive it too. She can drive a stick, but I think 6 speeds might be too many gears. I also drove a 6 speed and wasn't thrilled about how it shifted. The 6 speed is made in China and it required some extra side pressure to get it in 6th. I think there are aftermarket shift improvements that can be made. The 6 speed automatics have low gearing in 1st, which gets them going like having a higher, numerically, rear end.
