ok, so here is the deal. Right now I own an 05 m6 GTO. I love it and have had a ton of fun with it. Now it is time to upgrade to an 06. So here is my quesiton. I am looking at getting the a4. I have bad knees from years and years of paintball and motorcross. So when I am driving the m6 in town, or in traffic my knees can start to hurt. I love my m6 though because of the occasional ricer, or mustang a$$ kicking it delivers. :cheers I wanted to know how the performance of the automatic is as compared to the manual. I know I will loose a tiny bit of performance, but I don't want to be driving a sluggish auto. So what are you thoughts on performance.
