    I think this may be the time its appropriate to say "search". You will read many replies from all different angles.

    Better for mileage?
    Better for ET?
    Better for roll runs?
    Better for reliability?

    You NEED to be more specific. They both have their better qualities. It depends on what you want to do with the car.

    This subject comes up all the time and typically ends in 10 pages of a big arguement.

    For racing (legally) the a4 hands down, the 6 speed is to many gears to go through. In the old days I would prefer a close ratio 4 speed any day over an automatic.

    I cruise/race the 02 while I DD the 98.

    That makes me an A4 for drag racing and an M6 for DD cuz it's more fun.

    While I raced a 4-speed 69-1/2 A12 Dodge back in the 80's (that's a B-body Dodge Super Bee with a 440 6-pack and an A833 4-speed for you kids - I shoed it for a friend cuz I had the NHRA license) an auto has always been the more consistant time wise.

    i agree but somewhat dont. I dont recall going through all 6 gears ever racing legally so i dont see your point but i do agree with drag racing, the auto is superior over an m6. And a m4 vs a m6 really doesnt matter if u have the same gearing in it, just the m6 will have 2 more gears...

    I have never raced using a 6 speed (have with a close ratio 4), but have read more than 1 post of drivers shifting into the incorrect gear when accelerating, and doing damage down shifting into the incorrect gear @ higher rpm.

    JMHO that the 6 gears are too close together.

    And just to play devil's advocate, the 6 speed is much more likely to grenade your 10 bolt than the auto.

    lol ok well, now i see your point! I definately agree with you but i mean if you know your car well enough and know how to shift you shouldnt have too many problems with doing that.. That was a pretty big issue for me when i first got it but i havent drove a stick in over a year. It took me a few months to get use to that, i never drove a 4 speed but my old ass dad has.. lol
