Auto Vs. Manual

Sorry if its been done before. But I would be interested to see the results.
I prefer autos. But I like driving manuals too. I think in the end I will run a full manual c4 and get the best of both worlds.

What do YOU prefer and why?

As you are hoping for 350+ rwkw an auto is the best (cheapest) option..

Lol i'd have to agree.

But also when i get another car it will definetly be a manual.

They maybe a bit slower off the mark but final speeds are faster than an auto IMO. Anyway an AUTO V8 just wouldnt be as fun as a Manual with LSD, 6 speed, and a boss 260.

Re: Auto Vs. Manual

not enough poll options.
For me an auto is great for daily driver etc but a true manual is far superior when going to have some fun.
I cant vote, I want the best of both worlds.

Yeah I know what you mean, and this is pretty much how I feel too. But it would have been a bit hard to include all the different variations on the poll and still arrive at a clear cut winner.

So in the end I decided to keep it simple. I know it wil be a hard decision for many but just pick the one you most prefer.
