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.

Congrats...

i don't know if its true, but the salesman said the auto gets better gas because of the close gearing on the stick...

I read that somewhere too. It seems as if Atick folks are spining at higher RPM's on the highway as compared to the Auto boxes. That "may" account for a 1-2 MPG difference.

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. :)

When I bought my 06 BOP, the salesman pointed out that it's like getting two colors, because it often looks black at night.
