What has happened to all the manual GT-Ps

A good mate of mine has decided to buy a GT-P after driving mine a couple of times.
He thought he might be able to save a few bucks by buying a demo or 03 plate one. He has rung heaps of dealers in qld/nsw/vic.

His perfect match is Blueprint/stripes/manual/leather/satnav.

EVERY one that every dealer has to sell is BLOODY AUTO.

In fact the spec is (insert colour here)/leather/auto.

Lots of black/pearl/HgAg/Red, no blood/citric/blueprint etc and bugger all stripes.

In that these cars are basicly the ones that are less popular it appeales to my sense of humour me that spec is the same everywhere and that these cars have been ordered in by sales managers who seem to have missed the plot.



P.S. if anyone knows of a demo/03/used GT-P that fits his spec please PM me, he needs to buy it before COB June 30.

Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.

Might just be something to do with driveline shunt and the natural human instinct to avoid embarassing situations.
