My 98 was originally an auto, but the previous owner slapped an '02 6speed in it.

Ahh yes, good ole skip shift!

I have a vert m6. My family was looking for a trailblazer for my sister at the dealer when I stumbled on it. Just brought in the same day no sticker on it yet. Mint condition 21k miles. That was in '06. Loving every minute owning this car!

I have an 01 SS vert. Black, Black, ebony interior. CME, SS grille, chrome wheels, mats, everything

144 made in 6-speed These are with no SLP breakdowns ofcourse
112 in auto.

So the auto is actually harder to find in my case.

True, in most cases, the ratio of M6s to A4s is higher for SS/WS6/Firehawk 'verts than Z28/TA 'verts. Also, generally speaking, the ratio of M6 to A4s tends to be higher for coupes than 'verts. Seems buyers of performance-optioned cars and/or coupes tended towards M6s over A4s.

x100!

130+ MPH with the top down gets scary and fun at the same time.

Mine is a 02 and the number jumped to 41 that year. Mine is optioned with nearly everything from slp. Part of me wishes i woulda kept it stock but i love it still. I did keep every stock part down to the last bolt though. Just in case. Its all labeled in the basement and packed away.

130 is cool but topping it out is more fun and nerveracking.
