Highly debatable. My previous car was a 6-speed manual and I wanted the auto because the manual was often less fun. I know everyone loves operating their transmission, but some of us find heel toeing (which I did) to be an indication of an obnoxious and inefficient control system.

I have two feet, if you design the car so that I need to hit three pedals with two feet, you failed.

I don't know how long shifting takes in an E46 manual, but I know how long it took me in my type-s RSX, and it's not exactly super fast if you're shifting smoothly. If you're matching revs and not power-shifting, it takes a little while. The difference is that you don't notice because you're busy doing something.
