The five-speed auto is only available on the 2002 model, so if you're looking for an older car you're out of luck. Apart from that, the main thing to be aware of is that Auto Aero's have less torque than the manuals - apparently the auto-box can't handle so much torque. If I remember rightly the auto also lacks the maunal's overboost facility (where the engine gives out extra torque for accelleration for short periods). Hope that helps. H.
