Hey again.
Its been puzzling me for a while, but does anyone know the rough number of manual Ef Gli's made? Just wondering if I scored a rare car or they are a dime a dozen?

cheers pete

I'll corect you. EF Gli was manual standard.

Now I don't know figures, but GLi manuals are more common than Futura manuals. And EF Manuals are more common than EL manuals.

However there are a LOT more autos than manuals. Just remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I Love my factory EL Futura manual, I know of about 3 others on here and FFAU. I personally know a few EF Futura manuals.
