Very different. I can post side by sides of the internals if ya want. I have a spare of both a manual and auto and have had both apart. Different in every aspect. The ***** even spin different. On an auto they will spin to no end, the manual has cut off points where it won't turn any further.

Was a nice day today so I decided to clean up the head lights on the truck. Very dirty and didn't let a lot of light threw.

Went and picked up a car cover for $50. A size 4 would have been a little better, the size 3 is really tight.

FYI those car covers have a tendency to dull the clear on cars. No matter how soft they are they still end up being abrasive to the finish.

That'* why I covered it up clean. Dust and dirt will really mes up the finish. I also have a good coat of wax on the car. And besides, I think it will be worse off uncovered in the shop.

Haven't driven it in the dark yet. But it should be better. They were really hazed over.
