I too am allergic to the auto. I ordered and waited two months for my 06 ASM Coupe EX 5spd at Honda Cars of Boston, because there was nothing on their lot or the lots of any dealer in NE. The sticks tend to be more common in the DX's I think. They would find other cars while I waited, but in different colors. I almost gave in for the NBP, but couldn't live with the tan interior. Anyway, if you don't have to have the car right away I would just order and wait for exactly what you want. Good luck.
