For my "soon to be a reality" coupe and after driving both (and loving both BTW), I'm going with the M/T, totally against my original thoughts on what I'd be ordering.

And as far as "launch control" goes, for me it's a matter of common sense, a little driving "savy" and of course a little coordination between the left foot, the right foot and a few snicks of your right (left for my friends in the U.K) hand. No computer required!!
