I had a 2001 Accord EX V6 and sold it private party and bought a 03 Accord EX V6 coupe.

I do know that the difference between the auto and manual is night and day as far as performance! But in reality the automatic would be a huge upgrade for you since you are coming from a 2001 Accord with a 4spd auto. You need to drive both to decide. Do not rely on others opinions of the difference. That is a good start, but driving both yourself will give you a easy desision.

The difference is like a fat chick and a hot chick. One built for comfort, one built for speed.

I'd stick with the MT if I were you, with the 8th gen there is not only the transmission difference but also a different engine.
