Hello, <P>I am new to this board. I am interested in purchasing a Volvo V70 T5 in the future (7-8 months). I was wondering how rare are the V70 T5s with manual transmissions? I know there is one on Ebay currently, and I rarely ever see them, but are they really that hard to get? Also, which transmission is the better choice for withstanding power modifications- the manual or the automatic? Finally, are there any known issues with these cars?
