A day since I collected my Cayman and the feeling of driving a manual really exhlirates me tons. Even more so when the amount of torque that one can gain from 3 onwards is magnificient. Found joy again in driving, cf mundane transport with the auto gearbox.
The porker's gearbox is superb and with the sound coming from the flat 6, is just heaven! angel.gif thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif
So, folks out there, would you trade your auto for a manual anytime? What would your considerations be? Fire away

The best feeling in the world huh? MT, NA, pedal-to-metal is glorious beyond reproach! Congrats on getting a manual Cayman! My friend with an auto/tiptronic one isn't having half as fun as you! His friend with the GT3 however...
