    I love my manual car but I admit that I don't feel like driving it every single day

    I kinda wish I had bought my car with a six speed instead now actually.

    It's not like a DCT where you can actually drive it in automatic mode. I'm always in manual mode because auto mode sucks dick.

    Might as well be rowing my own gears at that point.

    I was under the impression that jet only drove manual cars in general and didn't just apply that preference to sports cars.

    Always goes back to the purpose of the car for what type of transmission it SHOULD have:

    Luxury - Auto
    Budget Cars - whatever they get
    Exotics - Depends
    Go fast cars - whatever goes fastest

    I feel I am judging the poor people wrong but whatever the lowest end Kia makes come with a crappy trans regardless of which one you pick

    I can't wait for the future. "Why would you touch the steering wheel and pedals when the AI does it faster?"

    On the topic of manual, I always thought it was cool that Porsche offered the Cayenne with that option. But then they made the GT3 PDK-only so fuck Porsche.

    I should be a douche and go to the P dealer and try and swing a 991 testdrive this weekend.

    Agreed, sort of. TheW215 was stunning compared to the outgoing W216, though I'm a bit biased. I loved the looks of my CL, but felt the current generation was just meh, which is one reason I returned to the S this time around. The pics of the S coupe now have me thinking of returning to the coupe when I get ready for my next car.
