Just for the feeling of being in control,etc as mentioned.Nanu wrote: ↑Fri Aug 05, 2022 8:25 pm If the auto G29 was crap, then indeed go for a manual, but it isn't so why would you?
I have just moved from a 7 speed DCT box to the G29 8 speed and there is no difference, both excellent. Would never consider a manual now on a modern car.
On a classic yes but not on modern cars.
Fine for a Daily,still manual for a Sports car.
I get the fact that most of us can't change gears in a manual to get the best times down,in terms of quoted 0-62 etc,and pretty much anyone can jump into an auto and get the car to do a near as book 0-62 time as is quoted,in cars like z4 M40, or an M4 etc, But Manual gearboxes still have their place,in the right cars
