Nice, i will never understand why they order so many black interiors. If they would just stock the other colors people would buy them. Its the same with manuals, some dealers are not going to order them period. This is the real reason manuals sales are in the hole. The manufactures also need to start offering the top of line model with a manual too.

No, manual sales are in the hole because nobody wants a manual. They don't sell well. It's not a matter of dealers not stocking them; 99% of people expect an automatic.

Black interior is the most popular. 90% of people expect a dark interior.

I own a manual with the dark/med atmosphere interior.

That's the exact car! I found one in Florida and now there is yours in Michigan. A bit out-of-the-way from California but I appreciate your offer...

I have to agree, if it's not a black interior I won't touch it. To hard to keep clean. Also manual sales are definitely fading especially with auto transmissions becoming so much more fuel efficient. I have the rule that 4 cyl I prefer manual, 6 cyl I can accept an auto in most cases, v8 I'm pretty good either way but kind of prefer an automatic.

5000 June 1, 2017 Delivered to dealer

I picked up the car on June 4th. It took twelve days for the DC to get the car onto an auto carrier for the 60 mile trip to the dealer. Since some incentives expired on May 31st, I ended up eating some $. Timing is everything! Dealer applied $1,000 of Instant Value Certificates to ease the pain.

I can't figure out how to upload photos. I signed up for PhotoBucket and uploaded photos to their site but can't figure out how to migrate them to here - sorry!
