Hey mate,

I test drove a 2011 MC Shift (F1) and a 2013 GT Sport when purchasing my Granturismo. I ended up going with the GT Sport for the following reasons:

1) The MC Shift F1 gear box was awesome when driving fast and shifting gears - super fast shifting and really gives you a race car feeling. However when taking off from neutral to 1st you can really feel the auto clutch engaging its almost like a grind and it makes the car jerky when taking off. Imagine this in traffic and it would drive you crazy.
2) The dealer mentioned that the clutch would probably need replacing every 30-45K kms and at around $6000 a replacement it didn't sound too appealing
3) However the clincher for me was the fact that the 2013 GT Sport had the current styling - the 2011 (or 2009 model in your case) has the older style seats and older style front body. This is going to hurt resale value and would have also annoyed me to know that i spent all that money for a car that was already outdated

At the end of the day it really comes down to what you are going to use the car for - if its a weekend track car go the the GT S (F1) but if its your everyday drive you cant go wrong with the auto 2013 GT Sport

The USA 2009 F1 clutch usually lasts 40-60k miles, depending on how its driven and how well its treated. Dealer quoted me $6500 USD. Given the car it is, is also worth it.... Who drives these cars to 110k miles anyway...

The front bumper can be upgraded to the OEM MC front bumper for only $1-2k USD. Very much worth the upgrade. It's a clean swap.

There are really no styling difference between the 09 F1 and everything else except the USA MC's back bumper. Even that can be upgraded on the 09 F1, but that would be a costly one.

I don't know about how the F1 drives unfortunately, so I can't confirm the above.

There are some GREAT deals on F1s out there. If you have the means to buy and invest in it, then go for it!
