"None of them had any enthusiasm for the standard shift."

"Dr Thiessen did not seem to be too sure about a manual being ultimately available although he is purely on the F1 side."

Being the starter of this train wreck, I would like to say that out of the three, SMG, Auto, and Manual, I would like SMG most in the M6. I'll be very very happy with it I'm sure. This thread was originally started based on my belief that there would be a large market for an auto in the M6. I still think that is true, for better or worse.

Based on lots of things including the quotes above, an auto is as likely to be offered in future M products as a manual, which is to say, not very likely. If this iteration of the M6 is ultimately available with a manual here in the States I think it will be the last. So rowers and heel toers get 'em while you can, if you can....The sky is darkening and soon the dinosaur will be dead!
