I had something typed out but then I decided that it wasn't worth the effort. I bet there are more autos, actually I have no idea. Don't see the point of this thread but I'll vote anyway. Can I vote for both

EDIT: nvm I thought this was in general

As a concession to my wife, who refuses to learn stick, I had to get an auto. She had inherited some money, so I had to get her buy in to get the car. When I'm independently wealthy I'll go back to a manual.

Thats true....sometimes. I like a manual for fun, but auto's are better sometimes as well. If I had a true sports car (M3 qualifies here) I would definitely want a manual - with the 330 and 325 they are fun driving machines but aren't like an S2000 or Z4 as far as "classic sports car". Driving to clients houses and eating on the road (yes I eat in my bimmer) is much easier in an auto. Honestly I'd like to have my car (auto 330ci) and an S2000 then I'd be completely satisfied...lol.

My last 4 cars were sticks. Not changing it anytime soon unless it is a twin clutch system.
