I am facing the very same question I am first on the list for the 2007 orders and have until the end of the year on my current lease, so timing isn't an isssue. I have to imagine that a 6-Speed is just more fun -- even if I lose .10 secs. Has anyone had any official confirmation that the '07 will indeed be offerred with a manual?

I have read a bunch of different reviews and nobody is fully in love with the SMG and its performance. However, I also read that the reason there was no manual to start was because of design reasons.

Obviously, I am still torn I would love any input
