Well I'm currently searching for an R to purchase and I'd really like to get the manual but it seems MUCH harder to find that I originally thought. Out of the handful of dealerships I have called, none of them have a MT in stock (nor do they expect one). I drove the auto and it still felt pretty peppy but probably not as peppy as the MT. <p>So Im just wondering, if I do end up getting an auto tranny, are there any available upgrades that will firm up the shifts and not make it so spongy? It seems like if the slow shift (an automatic tranny downfall) was taken out the 6.4s 0-60 time would be nicely improved.<p>I did a little bit of searchin but to no avail so I figured I'd just ask. Thanks for any info!
