Automatic Vs. Manual

I'm thinking about getting a 350z in the near future and I was wondering about the transmission.

How much does A/T differ from M/T on a 350z? (speed? feel? acceleration? etc?)

Does an auto 350z differ from a M/T Z other than transmission? Like can I put on mods without worrying about transmission differences? (coming from the DSM world, a/t and m/t had subtle differences)

I'll still probably get a manual, but I would still like to know.

Go manual. it mgets better gas milage, and acceloration is better if you know when to shift.
also its just more fun!

thats true, but some people prefer automatic. You can put mods on a automatic transmission car without any worries. Some people would say a automatic is even better then manual, but I prefer the control I get with manual so. +)

manual owns if you are driving a sports car. If you have a 1000+ hp dragster then go Auto.
