What is everyone picking up? A six-speed manual or eight-speed auto?

I've driven manuals for most of my life, get bored driving automatics. So I'll be rowing my own gears in the ats-v.
Does the auto come with paddles?
Can't imagine it wouldn't. Although it's been said the new 8 speed is best when left to shift itself.
I am a diehard manual trans guy but I'm extremely disappointed the ATS-V did not come with the 7 speed manual.
John Barrick and Tony Roma stated that to fit the 7 speed from c7 they would've had to push the powertrain too far forward throwing off the weight balance.

So 6 speed with 50/50 weight distribution was the way to go.
