Not a direct experience, but the guy I bought my E46 convertible from in September was replacing the E46 with a 2017, 4,000-mile Mazda Miata. He sourced the car from Carvana. He tried to buy a CPO Miata from the several local Mazda dealerships, but he said all were either white, black, or gray.

He said the Carvana experience was great. They delivered the car on a flatbed on the day and time stated. Rolled it off and he took it for a test drive. If he didn't like the car or the condition of it, he could refuse to buy it. He liked it of course. He said the transaction couldn't be easier. The delivery driver pulls out a tablet, calls up the purchase software, sign in a few places and complete the (pre-arranged) payment/financing. He was financing the purchase through his credit union, so he just gave the driver the check. Also, Carvana has a no-questions-asked 7-day return policy, so if the car doesn't turn out to be what you expected, you can return it. Carvana works all the DMV stuff and mails the tags once the 7-day return period is over; the car is delivered with a temporary tag.

He couldn't have been more pleased with the process and transaction.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
