It took a while, but I've got the cell-phone thing mastered...

One up-side to the ATX is convenience in heavy traffic (for some people at least). That's a start, right?
Oh, and you don't have to worry about parking attendants not being able to drive your car. I once saw a valet attempt to park some lady's MTX Porsche. It was painful to watch. Poor car.
I'm probably paranoid, but to this day I'm nervous about leaving my car with an attendant for this reason.

Re: mtx

Only way to tell would be to go to a dealership and see what they can do. Try to find someone who works for ford who can give you s-plan cuz that can really help on a trade . I went from an 03 6 to an 04 3 using s plan and 2K down.

Re: mtx

I still don't wanna leave my auto with valet's and such cause I'm worried they'll put it in manu-mode without knowing it and rev the crap out of it. I know it has safety shutoffs, but revving that high can't be good for the car anyway. My only complaint about the car so far is that Manual is on the same horizontal line as D, so ppl who don't know put it in M when they think its in D. Scares me.

If you get an mtx you can do burnouts without damaging the car

Neither do I, but in the city parking attendants are everywhere... just about every other public parking garage.
