6 SPEED AUTOMATIC VS 6 SPEED MANUAL?

Would you keep the standard stick or Would you buy the auto with the paddle shifters? Why?

in a car like this,in MY VIEW, would never have the "slush box!"!..part of the fun in having the car is driving the "stick!"..i don't care "two s**ts" about the so called "paddle shifters"..it's NOT the same as a good 6 speed!..just sayin!

paddle shifters

Tne manual has no delay the paddle shifter have a delay in every car that I have driven. For a family car the paddle shifters are fine, But for a camaro I will take a manual every time.

It's a matter of personal preference. What is right for one is not for another.

on a V8...For a daily driver or car that was going to see the track often, I would get an auto...and get a tune to make it perform the way it should. On a V6, I think I'd just get an M6.

Do you want to drive the car? Then get the manual transmission
Do you want the car to drive you? Then get the auto trans.

My two cents on this thread is to get what you want. Why put down others if they choose a LS3 or L99? A Camaro is a Camaro. I opted for the L99 for the fact that I did not want to get tickets. lol One other factor was that I have a problem with my left leg and back. Not everyone can get the LS3 for reasons that are unknown to others.

No crap I know the RS has nothing to do with performance. I was wondering if the V6 has a speed limiter at 118mph.
