Auto or Manual ?

I am thinking of upgrading from my 2002 Z06 to a good used C7 Corvette. A 2015 or 2016 Stingray 2LT. I like my Manual Trans in my Z06, but as I look at all the used Corvettes out there, it seams that about 80 to 90% of them are automatics. Anyone out there that owns a C7 Corvette, please give me your thoughts on which way to go. I prefer a manual, but what if I run across a real nice used Corvette with low miles and the color and packages I like, but it's an automatic, should I buy it or hold off for a stick shift one.

Thanks for Any Imput

I wasn't a fan of the auto until I drove it in track mode but it is inconvenient that you can only shift with the paddles when in auto mode

The manual requires more effort over the auto, but heel and toe rev matching is fun in the manual.

The rev matching is a big plus. That's a really neat feature that the manual C7 has going for it.
