Re: Auto v Manual? If you could choose again!
how much do you like to drive?
my S1 BA ute is a V8 manual and i love it! it is a bit of a pain in the city traffic and you cant punch through the cogs like a rice burning EVO, but there's nothing hitting the open road, finding a B double in the way, dropping the stick back to 4th and whipping past before the next corner. The manual will have you there before the auto has finished thinking about it!
resale depends on the car, i'd pay more for any car that was well looked after, but a well looked after car that is manual, thats rare in my book.
