Two of the fastest vehicles I ever owned were autos.




Disappointing inflammatory post by a vender is disappointing

Manual!

Learned to drive on an auto, but got a manual 3 years later and have never looked back.

Never even considered an auto for my BRZ, as I didn't want to miss out on the engine and FDR changes. This car is made for people who love to drive... not sure why you would want to limit the fun. I understand it's up to personal preference, but for me I will always get a manual if I can.

The only time I dislike having a manual is rush-hour traffic... but thankfully my commute has me driving the opposite of direction of everyone else.

My dad likes to say: "Drive a manual, steer an automatic".

Dude, we can be talking about valve stem caps and the thread can turn into a bitter debate about MT vs AT so too actually start one for the subject is a bit off putting. You are not new here!


Wait!
Are you actually @go_a_way1 incognito?

LOL he is a guy that used to make a bunch of joke threads. Got carried away a couple of times. Dropped out of sight a while back though. I know you aren't him but a lot of the regulars will get the joke.
