Don't get me wrong, when I drove my STI, it was fun. Heel-toe-ing all day long. But driving an auto gives me so much more freedom and is just straight up more comfortable. I used to get knee pains on my left leg due to my clutch on my Talon and STI (not a sponge-like honda clutch). On top of that, I can punch in stuff on my navi, flip through songs on my phone whenever I want without having to ride a gear, hold my gf's hand haha, and other stuff I do nearly every single day.
Maybe if I had a car worth having a stick, i.e., something with 500hp+ stock and awesome handling, I would care more to give up those comforts. But, for me, the comforts greatly outweigh the fun from a sub 400hp car.
I probably won't end up getting another stick until I get a 911 or something.
