I've got a transmission tune in my G8 that makes it tolerable, but I'd give my left nut to have a manual in the car.
I drove a G8 GXP (with T56) when I worked at a body shop. Good god was that different from the miata. It was awesome. Very torquey. Drank gas though. I have yet to drive a C6 ZR1 more then around a driveway. But just sitting in it... Everything everyone has ever said about the interior is true. Awful.
