Auto VS. Manual

Currently looking at the BA XR8 and cannot decide on which would be the better transmission for it, the 5 speed manual or the 4 speed sequential auto. I've heard (somewhere) that the auto's in the XR8 aint so crash hot... Anyone like to help on this matter?

So lets say I wanted to put a Vortech Supercharger on it to take it up to 400KW... Will the Auto handle it or am I looking at a new transmission?

Wait a year or so and get a ba2, if they bring out the new 6 speed auto im sure this will solve your problem.

I like the way you think. Do you know if it will be a Sequential Shift?
