Post How many of you drive a Manual Transmission?

I always wondered how many of you drive a manual Benz?

Please state you Age,State and City and the Model???

Also describe how hard was it to get a manual and why did you get it instead of an automatic, because for me to find a stick was a BITCH!

-I'll start I'm 23 I drive a C 300 manual in LA.

The only Mercedes available with manual transmission in USA for 2010 are C300 and SLK300.

It's a different EPA certification to sell the car in the USA between auto and manual and this certification is very expensive and is only attempted with cars Mercedes know will sell in volume to recover those costs.

Best thing you can say about a manual transmission Mercedes is that it will have poor resale value.

2.3-16 with a 5 spd, dog leg, Getrag transmission. The ones with an automatic transmissions are the ones with the lower resale value.

230CE with a 5spd. I wouldn't have even looked twice, let alone buy it, if it had an automatic...

San Jose, CA Driving an SLK320 6SP manual. A blast to drive. I liked it a lot. Just bought a SLK32 for the sister. It is powerful, but I still like the manual more than the automatic.
