comparing my 2 camaro's auto vs stick

im just amazed at how different our 2 new camaros are. seems the wifes automatic is a tad louder exhaust wise and it seems a bit more sensitive on the gas pedal. i must say i am pretty impressed with the auto and it will really get down when i mash the gas to the floor. by my butt dyno id say my manual feels faster. hers gets way better around town gas mileage and mine gets way better highway mileage. anyone have any other comparisons theyd like to share or questions between the 2 cars?

Par for the course. My 02 SS 6 speed and the wife's nearly identical twin 02 Z28 auto behaves similarly. So no, no questions.

I think it is more of a bragging thread than a comparison thread!

not trying to be bragging but id expected somebody would say that. redjewel just get her the v-8. 6 cylinder and camaro should not be in the same sentence plus when you have to drive it on occasion after your married youll want the v-8.

V6 and Camaro belong in the same sentence when the V6 outperforms a lot of V8's.
