Thanks Andy. It sounds like the EVO was marketed seperately and as an optional model then, in 1996 and forward? I don't know how to identify them so am not sure if there are any here in the States. Seems I've heard tell of them in threads mostly from the European community.
The automatic I have was supposedly the only transmission in the Daytona Violet Cabrio, but that was only one man's perspective. It has Sport mode, Manual and Economy (the default), and there is a button to disable the Stability Control as well. Lots of options! In Manual mode it starts out in 2nd and then will not shift until I move the stick. Not great for fast starts but I guess good for selecting RPM at speed, like a manual. Sport mode seems to allow shifts near the redline as opposed to Economy. Haven't had the chance to experiment much yet.
Thanks again for reply,
