I was suprised to read Earnest's post that in it he said he was so glad he got the auto for his turbo car opossed to his manual experience in the base. I'm curious the people who are choosing auto over manual have you always been an auto driver, is your car a daily driver in a congested area. How much time have you spent driving one versus the other. isn't one of the criterea of being a sport car include a manual transmission? thank you for any and all comments. wouldn't it be great to test drive the car before it shows up for delivery so you can avoid second guessing your every descision and waiting so long to see if you were right..
