it was one of the reasons I got rid of my Mini 6 speed-I learned to drive on manuals and had one continuously for about 30 yrs till I sold the Cooper...auto boxes are pretty darn good these days-I was particularly impressed at the AMG driving course with the sport mode's ability to choose a gear entering and exiting corners...I'm done with manuals man!!

If I were stuck in traffic everyday, then I would think about getting an auto. As it is I don't so I don't... R)

That was my point. If you had to drive there why would you want a clutch !
I quite agree. I lived in London for 15yrs driving manual box for the first 8 then ended up with quite bad left knee pain sitting in rush hour.

So ... I bought a black cab :) Sorted out the knee and I met loads of new folk as they tried getting in lol.

EDIT: Way before Stephen Fry did ... I was first :bannana:
