For those of you, who bought your V with the MT, what's your thoughts?
What car did you have prior to your new V?

Thanks in advance for your responses!

If you like a manual, go with it. If you like an auto, go with it. No choice is a bad one in the new v.. I have driven 1300 miles on mine, it is a stick and i enjoy every moment, I have also driven quite a few automatics, all just as enjoyable...

Ditto. I have the 6sp and love it. If I lived in an area with rush hour I'd probably want the auto. I had the 04 V. Then went to a MB with an auto and I'm happy to be back to the 6sp. I don't deal with heavy traffic though. I live in Wisconsin and we're getting quite a bit of snow. The sottozero's have been amazing.

I traded my 2005 CTS-V for the 2009 CTS-V and the Tremec 6060 is far superior to the previous manual. The shifts are short, precise and just feel better than with the prior transmission. I recommend the manual because it gets the driver more involved with the car and is more appropriate for an extreme performance sedan.
