I'm with Joe and Amy...........and will look elsewhere..........
@MusicCityMadman - Since it isn't possible to get the manual transmission without the two equipment packages, discussing the pricing of the transmission by itself isn't really possible.
I never respect nissan engineering! I have driven the G35 and thats the worse 6-speed I have driven.
Sloppy journalism. Spending two minutes on Nissan's website reveals that the 6MT comes standard with two packages that cost about $3400 on the CVT. So if you get the same car for $2400 more than the other base, but you get $3400 worth of options, how much have you paid for the manual transmission......... -$1000. Disclaimer: I do not work for Nissan, I do not drive a Nissan and I agree with all the comments that you can do a lot better than this car for same or less money.
