That's got to be the reason if they end up not making the manual available. Mercedes might want to reconsider though if they want to be a serious contender in this segment - the investment will be more than worth it. As far as I know, Mercedes isnt exactly overflowing with transmission options...there is no Mercedes analogue for the steptronic or SMG, which is odd. Every car company these days has a number of trannys in their pockets except for Mercedes. It seems like automatics are the only thing they are able to do.

...I'm not sure if their current six-speed can handle much more torque than the C240/SLK320 pump out. Trust me, I'd like to see the C320K with a six-speed, but I'm not 100% sure it will happen.
