Wow!! I just checked a few websites (honda, toyota, kia) on their models, almost none are offering manual transmission?!? I understand that most people will go for the auto, but definitely there'll be some go for manual one. I mean how difficult it is to have an option for manual? Just blardy import the car in as like an auto?? Are there more paperwork?? Mechanic dunno how to service a manual ride?? The factory no longer producing manual transmission?? It's not like they stock up manual vehicles in their showroom and not able to sell (they order then ship in usually). So why they don't even offer it anymore still buffles me.

If BMW, Audi, VW, Merc were to offer manual transmission, i'm pretty sure there will be orders for them too. Anyone wanna shed some light??

Exactly. Very few buy manual car already. It doesn't make economic sense for the ad to keep parts for manual cars while they sell very few manual cars.
Argueing with a fool proves there are two.

For Cayman, use PDK with manual shift will make you feel like F1 driver.

It depends on driving skill. For manual, i only use my left leg only in a traffic jam situation.
