: Buying the V

Im in the market and have a question.

Im coming out of a 04 V. Loved the car, loved having it be a manual.
What is your thoughts on Stick Vs Manual? 0-60 and 1/4 mile. Who will win?

^stick if you know how to drive. If you're a newb than auto.

It is very hard to beat an auto tranny on a forced induction car.

When Car and Driver tested the V2, the auto was significantly quicker 0-60.

I just hope the auto can hold up the the HP.

If you have two drivers of equal skill the auto will win, but how often does that happen. If you really like driving a stick vs. the auto then the .1 second difference there is between the two shouldn't influence you one way or another.

Auto for sure is quicker, but how many times will you drag it? and then worry about 2 tenths of a second! Mine will be a stick, cause
I like to drive! No flames from auto owners, each to their own!
