First off, I will make something clear, in my opinion standards are superior to automatics. Due to the fact that you get better control of RPM, gears,etc... and they are fun to drive!
With that being said, I saw a post the other day where a texer claimed that only 3% (underestimation? Probably) of the ppl who frequent this board drive automatics.
I was wondering which setup you guys preffer and why.
or
Even if you don't preffer it, why do you have that current setup?
In my case, I drive an automatic because I got a steal of a deal on the car (38000 km, $10000 Cdn)
So? Discuss.

you definitly have WAY more control over your rpms! im not bashing anybody who's got auto, but im just sayin that you really have to know how to drive when you're doin autoX and that kinda stuff.
for example, when you're startin off from a dead stop you have to know how to feather your clutch well to have a non jerky spinless yet powerful take off. takes skill!

If you're 17 you should probably know that "funner" isn't a word...

I drive a standard and I really don't like driving automatics (even if it's got some kind of sport mode I don't like it much). The DSG VW offers gives me a little satisfaction to drive but it's still not near as fun as a 5/6spd.
