I have been searching for a 2nd Gen V to replace my 1st gen.
My ideal combo is:
OBM | Black Int. w/Recaros | Manual | Sedan
I haven't found any OBM sedans for sale... and finding a Manual Sedan seems rare as well. I think silver is the only other color I'd consider but I don't like settling.

That is a very recent color. Most people who bought those are still paying for the car, or aren't ready to sell so soon.
Sorry but imo, you should plan on waiting a year or two before seeing those pop up for sale :(

Not quite a unicorn.

Manual V2's in general are scarce. Add in the paint and Recaro's and it gets more scarce.

If you wanted even more scarce, add sunroof delete option :)

Keep looking and expand your search, one will come up, just need some patience.

Most of the manuals I've seen had the base seats. Weird.

Fortunately I'd like the ultraview roof

Took me a long time to find mine with low mileage and no modifications. Thought i was going to have to settle with an auto. It was definitely worth waiting for.

I've been searching for a 2011-13 manual sedan with Recaros in the black diamond color for the better part of 8 months and have only come across a handful that all got scooped up immediately. Ur chance of finding a OBM color one are so slim. I'm hoping when the V3 comes out maybe some guys will be trading up and more manual V cars become available. I may end up having to go with Black Raven if I don't find one in the next few months, getting tired of waiting.

The V3 doesn't offer a manual, so don't expect a bunch of manual V2s to hit the market on V3 trade-ups. Sure, some people will upgrade anyway, but some people will hang onto their manual V2s longer because there's no new manual available.

Maybe some manual V2 owners will make the move to ATS-V?

I'm sure a few will, but I doubt any significant short-term migration -- the sedan's back seat is even tighter, and the coupe lacks the outre styling, and I suspect its track performance won't be as compelling for most V2 owners as the LSA's feel (and sound) on the street.

Not without a V8 in said ATS-V. Further, ditto the comment about the back seat. I have a kid and a MIL with arthritis to transport, so midget seats won't do.

A few months ago, I bought a 2013 sedan, CPO warranty, 6 speed manual, recaros, fully loaded except for painted calipers. I started off looking at black coupes, but liked the sedan better. When I switched to looking for sedans I didn't give any preference to ext. color. I ended up with a red one and I'm happy with it.

My mistake, I was going to post one that carmax had, but it was a coupe. They didn't have pictures of it and I was looking for a silver 6 speed. You have to be careful because I've seen some autos advertised as a 6 speed. The first thing I do is look for the clutch pedal and the pull out section of the recaros or the heat and cool symbols on the dash if they don't have a good picture of the seats. Also check to see if they have the suede wheel package and the wood package.

ATS-V+ brother. That may be a bad bitch with a manual.

When I wanted to sell my manual sedan, I couldn't find a real buyer with money. I finally let it go for wholesale.
