Well like I said in the other tranny poll thread I'd go with a built super duper tough Auto for some serious power. But for somethin like a daily driver or blowin some smoke here and there i'd like a manual.

I voted for Manual.... But have an automatic... much easier for me since I've broke my back before and been banned from manual tranny's for 6 months.... Also with the auto, much easier to hold my latte and drive at the same time!

I prefer a manual, but an auto is easier at the boat ramp.

Yeah the auto tranny sure is pretty convenient isn't it? I don't know how many times I catch myself text messaging back and forth with my girlfriend in heavy traffic.... I'd never be able to in a manual, unless I was on the interstate!! Just joking ya'll...
