Does the 4-speed AT work the same as the 5-speed AT, except that, of course, it has 4-speeds? Can I slip into fully automatic and also shift "manumatically" with the 4-speed AT, like the 5-speed AT?

Thanks for the info. By the way, what is the best 0-60mph time you've gotten with the 6i AT? Anyone know what the "official" 0-60 times are for the 6i AT?

I dont have a chance to use it yet. My car is only about 400 miles, still a baby. I try to keep the RPM under 3000 until 1000 miles. Once it passes 1000 miles, I'll play with the sportshift. :D

I have the AT 6i and I hit 60 in a little over 9 seconds. I videotaped a 0-60 run a few weeks back and it looks like its ~9.2 seconds. It feels like its getting stronger as it gets older (Im at 4500k miles now).

I think 9.2 is very good...it's about par with the Protoge ES with manual trans and similar to Accord and Camry 4cyl/Auto. This engine has tons of opportunity for development though.
