Plus I'm lucky. I drive an hour to work on open back roads with very little traffic . Also, I didn't want to pay an extra $1300 gas guzzler tax for the auto.
Heavy traffic;;Glad I got the A4,,still screams when I get in the open,,,had plenty of manuals when I was younger, and no traffic!!Groucho said::agree
I'm in a simialar situation. Most of my drive is on a fairly wide-open stretch of highway, with a pretty serious section of heavy traffic. The Tremec in our M6s is a good transmission, and the torque of the V8 makes an easy-shifting car that's excellent in stop-n-go traffic.
I like to pick my own gears.
