I actually 'liked' the rawness of the mechanical trans sounds. Reminds me of my SMG Trans in the M5. However... I've since updated my 2010 to the 2013 trans specs (just an ecu upgrade from cobb)... trans is butter smooth & quiet. 15K daily driven miles here, and a 10 year old boy, 6 year old daughter that fit just fine. Rear Seat is only good till about 12 years old max IMO... but only other alternative for me would be a ZR1... and then I could never take the family on a weekend fun trip.
