C7 manual 7 speed box may be the worst part of the car IMO. Now that they have the new Auto 8 paddle shift manual orders had dropped way off. Part of it is that dealers don't order them with manuals anymore and few people special order them or get factory delivery. I did, and that's how I was able to get a manual. Looking for a manual with the features I wanted was impossible. Not all manual gearboxes are alike.
