VF SS-V Redline
Due to a bit of an ordeal with our dealer I now have the choice to either get the redline that I want in an auto or wait for the manual one that I have on order. Just wanting some opinions on the auto.

Your profile ride is telling me that you have already chosen and just want us to verify your choice.

I had to wait 11 weeks to get the exact Redline that I wanted.. I'd say wait for the manual.. I'm glad that I did.

I wouldn't own a manual again, and I went from "I wont drive an auto" type of person, I love my slush box, even if this one only have 4 cogs. I really love the 6 speed auto in my brother VE SS. I would have that any day over the manual!

That one is entirely up to you. Nobody else can make that choice

A manual was my first choice but considering stop start traffic and the mrs being able to drive when I have drink made it an auto for me. Only done sub 200kms but the auto is nice and smooth

The clutch in the manual is very light and you get 10kw extra power to play with. I thought the auto was a bit sluggish when I drove it.

You can't use 10kw as a reason to buy. 10kw is piss all.

Test drive both options, then make your mind up.
