    When you buy Your ILX, MANUAL or AUTOMATIC transmission? and why?

    Be honest, what transmission would you pick manual or automatic?

    Manual! It's just so much more fun driving manual, you get a real feel of the car. Too bad manual transmission cars now no longer make a difference with gas mileage. I believe the ILX Manual and Automatic get almost the same MPG.

    I will say that I drove a friend's 2000 NSX @ Mid-Ohio during an HPDE and it is better than that 6sp but maybe that may be because he had 70K on the odo.

    I got the auto because of the Tech package features only come with auto. The other reason is if you ever have hurt your right hand or left foot its pretty hard to drive a 6 speed with one hand or one foot.

    The ILX has one of the nicest 6 speed manuals you can buy anywhere.
