I reckon your gunna have trouble finding one full stop. Try searching for one on the net, trading post or the paper.

Good luck though. I hope you find what you want.

What do you drive now?

i was under the impression that only the early BA XT V8's could come in manual, other than that you had to get an XR6, Turbo or 8 to get a manual?

The auto tranny on an XT is a cost option.

Not as fast, faster.. probably not as fun in the twisties but the tiptronic function is good.

How did you come to this conclusion? (just interested :) )

I would have thought that the manual would have had the edge, especially off the line...

Also, the Ford dealer that told that bloke that a manual will cost MORE. What a load of s**t!!!

It's the auto that is the cost option, not the other way around....
