Sorry, but there are no plans for manual transmission at the moment.

The touring with the M-sport package would look mighty good in Le Garage de Uter.

Think it's likely that'll be an option able to be ordered in the US in the near future, or not 'til the end of the model cycle.

Yep, USC is doing a job on most of the teams. It'll be a great game with Oklahoma.....unless they get upset by UCLA or Notre Dame.
