Sorry if I'm still confused. Don't you have to press a third pedal all the time when you drive?

Not to mention the fact that you don't have to put it in manual mode every time. You can actually paddle shift at any time while in "regular" mode as well.

Okay, you guys got me me there on #3. You guys actually have more control in that you have control over it being in Normal Auto vs Sport Mode Auto vs Full Manual. Launch control is the main control missing in the Auto.

I have to supplement my previous post as I forgot to add something. Since I'm young and stupid, I wanted to get a Manual before I had to start considering things like practicality and what not. I figured, when I'm older (having not grown up with M/T), I wouldn't want to drive a M/T.

Rationally, for myself, A/T would have been the far more sensible option. But luckily, for once my girlfriend encouraged me to be stupid because she knew I'd love it and that I'd just regret not having a M/T down the line. She was right. Now whenever I drive an A/T, I get bored and find myself still moving my left leg and going through the motions.

Maybe in 50-100 years there won't be any more manuals. 100 years down the line all cars might be required to be automated (the one that drives itself) to prevent the possibility of human error that causes accidents. You never know lol
