Whatever you want to call it...
I've driven the A8 w/ tiptronic, the new 300M with Autostick, and a
couple other manually shifted autoboxes over the last couple years, and I
don't care for any of them. The whole point of a manual is to shift
gears smoothly so as not to upset the car. The auto-manuals can't do
this. If they come up with an ECU that can disengage the clutch and blip
the throttle properly, then maybe it will work as I expect it to. So
far, I've only seen that in F1 though.
I agree with the lady that bought the Viper in the article posted this
AM - automatics are for wimps. period. And, you shouldn't be talking on the
phone while driving anyway. Even drinking coffee is marginal
And while we're being dogmatic, sportscars don't have 4 seats. period.
Yeah, I'm in one of those moods. :-)
