I believe that was in the lower trim models of the C class and they were so rare. But with the way Mercedes is going they want to just keep it straight automatic from now on.

Bmw on the other hand will be offering the 6 speed transmission, well that is sort of their thing. I don't think it would be enough to steal the win from the segment but some might have that as a priority in smaller numbers.

Mercedes is just as sporty but they are a different breed trying to accomplish things with the DCT. I believe even the SLR didn't come with a 6 speed transmission. Guess it's not a common focus for them.

Only nine percent of drivers in US drive a stick. That is why they are disappearing. Been driving a manual most of my life but they are getting harder to find and also impact on resale value.

My first 4 vehicles were manual. It wasn't until I got married that I started buying autos. Now I get my manual fix when I go to Europe and rent manual transmission cars.
