Yeh yeh great review, the guy left out one point unless I missed it in that rambling review, for me anyways shifting a manual transmission is FUN!

You want linear acceleration, wait ten years when the internal combustion engine is history and the electric or hybrid is the engine of choice, and with the gearing possible in that type of engine it will be the ultimate stump puller with true linear acceleration. Will it be fun to drive the car, for me I would make a guess and say not really.

The manual transmission equipped car is on the way outů so I will buy one while I still can.
