The LED additions are nice since you now don't have to mod those in. Price of gas nowadays and with it rising more in the future the 2.0L looks nice. Tranny to me mostly depends on what you enjoy. I always pick a manual over an auto due to enjoying the shifting experience. Although every blue moon I wish I had an auto because of crazy congested traffic or feeling very lazy. The ride is softer which I love with bad roads or long trips. Going to buy a strut bar for better corner handling.
