    Put a 3500 stall in the auto trannies, and they are just about as fun as a manual tranny

    If you really enjoy shifting gears you'll miss the manual. I say keep looking until you find one. The extra HP will only keep you happy for a short time. It's just like a pay raise at work. Your happy for a little while but will always want more and that's when you'll be kicking yourself for not getting what you really want. To me if your asking this you don't want an auto.

    You'll miss the manual, don't get the auto.

    My first 4th gen was a M6 Formula, now I have an A4. Honestly, I didn't even like the M6 that much, it used to frustrate me because I couldn't launch it to save my life. Not the car's fault, I'm just a lowsy stick driver.

    After driving the A4 for a while, I miss the M6.

    Now if you ENJOY your manual, 3 days in the A4 and you'll be sick of it. Plus the stock A4 feels alot slower, these cars feel like beasts with the M6.
