This isn't about which is better, this is only about which one you prefer.

    If that's not enough for you to decide, then test drive both, then decide.
    ^^^This! Only thing I would add is if your are at all competitive with dragging, the autos are out performing the manuals by say 1.5-2 secs through the quarter.

    Good luck

    At risk of being called a Luddite with my cars by my friends again, if you are interested in a manual transmission, get it. So few worthwhile cars have them. And the one on the V is pretty good to boot.

    Re: Auto or manual which one you have

    Cad CTS-V2 automatic versus manual trans data (as of 01-02-2012):

    Manual trans (M6): Tremec TR6060 6 speed manual,
    fully synchronized with single overdrive (MG9):
    Gear ratios (:1) 1st: 2.66, 2nd: 1.78, 3rd: 1.30, 4th: 1.00,
    5th: 0.80, 6th: 0.63, final: 3.73, reverse: 2.90

    Gas Guzzler (GG) tax of $1300, or half that of the A6
    Faster by 16 MPH (191 MPH versus 175 MPH (governed))
    A tad slower in the 1/4 & on the street
    A tad better mileage than the auto but probably not significant
    About 32 more RWHP than an A6 on average as measured on a Dynojet
    About 27 more RWTQ than an A6 on average as measured on a Dynojet
    About 95 lbs lighter that the auto
    No remote start feature
    Has “no lift-shift” feature

    Automatic trans (A6): Hydra-matic 6L90E 6 speed
    electronically controlled automatic overdrive with
    torque converter clutch (MYD): Gear ratios: (1 1st:
    4.03, 2nd: 2.36, 3rd: 1.53, 4th: 1.15, 5th: 0.85, 6th: 0.67,
    final: 3.23, reverse: 3.06

    Gas Guzzler (GG) tax of $2600, or twice that of the M6
    Slower by 16 MPH (175 MPH (governed) versus 191 MPH)
    A tad quicker in the 1/4 & on the street
    A tad worse mileage than the manual but probably not significant
    About 32 less RWHP than an M6 on average as measured on a Dynojet
    About 27 less RWTQ that an M6 on average as measured on a Dynojet
    About 95 lbs heavier that the manual
    Remote start feature
    Normal mode initially starts in 1st gear, then starts in 2nd gear thereafter
    Manual mode starts in 1st gear always

    About 1 in every 6 ’09 CTS-V’s were / are manual trans (M6)

    The wagon in stickshift is as fast if not faster than an auto. Reason being is the extra 150+lbs sitting on the rear wheels the wagon has. The reason why the stick is slower because its alot harder to launch it.

    You can put a 12 inch wide wheel/ 345 tire on a coupe and launch like a madman in auto or stick.

    I have an automatic (sedan). Bought paddle shifters as well. Love the car.

    All that said, if I were to do it again, I would have gone w a manual. My last car was a manual, and I miss the feel.
