I love my auto for my DD. I have a street bike for changing gears. With that said when I get to a point where my car is not a DD I'm already considering a 5 or 6 speed. Maybe

I like my auto since I drive it everyday. But there's sometimes that I wish I had a manual!

Manual! Even though it's nice just to sit back and hit the gas you can't replace the fun you have rippin threw the gears yourself!

+1 I can't stand sitting back and letting the car control it.

Love manuals. Except for the stop and go highway traffic. But punching it out once the roads clears up makes it worth it to me

Manual!
When I'm driving a manual I feel more connected to the car. It's a much greater experience.
After I drove my car for the first time and was able to shift gears on my own, everything changed.

Yea, I love my manual, out of the 8 cars I've owned, 5 were manuals (2 were jettas... Don't judge me lol) automatics are just to boring to me.
