Mine still retains the auto....wifey-poo requirement when I bought the car. She has long since decided she hates the thing which sort of gives me an open invitation to do as I please. Supercharged it a while ago and I can't say the auto is particularly happy with this. Notice some shifting issues under boost...lags when gear is manually selected. No real concerns since a later model 6 speed is in the works and the sooner the auto gives up and dies...the better. With car has 84,000 miles on it and trannie never missed a bit...even when abused. Now with supercharger (installed a couple months ago), it's starting to act funny. Save yourself the grief and start off with a manual....much better choice.
