    That's about all that's leftover. The autos are a bit faster than the manual and have a lot of upgrades available.

    There's nothing to really watch out for on LS2 models. Just the usual stuff you'd look for on any car. Check the paint quality.

    The autos launch about a billion times better, shift consistently, don't have 1-4 skip-shift and don't pop out of gear on occasion.

    i would change the oil

    prob lots of moisture stuck in the engine

    after the oil change run the engine for like 10 min

    shut the engine off and take off the oil cap and let the moisture get out

    The manual is a $695 option so with the tax you're only looking at a difference of $305 between the two transmissions.
