I'm pretty excited. The dealer just called. It "should" be ready for delivery tonight or first thing in the morning. Why did I get the Auto? Well, I have pretty bad arthritis. Most of my driving is in town so the shifting would be pretty painful.
I know for sure with my manual xB, at 60 MPH, the RPMS is at about 3k exact or so Versus 2k rpms at 60 for the Auto boxes I heard. I would tihnk that the sticks get better mileage but hell, i would sacrifice 1 MPG for a more fun to drive experienece
yeah, BOP rules! also a rare breed in hawaii, for some strange reason. and most of the time ppl think i have a black box. i like how it can look black, dark gray, or blue depending on the amount of light on it. have fun with it.
