Question NOVA transmissions question

Im in the market for a new daily driver (Mazda 3 Hatchback). I want it to be Manual, but people are saying thats a bad idea cause I live in NOVA so im in traffic alot and commute to fburg every weekend.
but I wanna learn manuel and besides it being a pain in the a** in traffic. I think its better to mod a manuel over an auto. plus I dont think its worth the time to tune an auto, or am I wrong? also, as pathetic as it sounds. I dont wanna be a joke in "The car Scene world" with an auto, or am do lots of people have tuned autos?...

I wanna do some light modifications to the engine, for example
- upgrade spark plugs/wires
- headers
- coldair intake
- catback
etc etc...

Not really worth modding a base Mazda 3. MazdaSpeed 3 would be a different story.

If you think a Mazda 3 is the only cool car to mod at your budget, which I'm guessing is in the 8k-10k range, you're insane.

You will be that guy if you buy a Mazda 3 auto or manual.
