	i'm pretty much over the "must have a manual thing" in the car
i share with my wife, which is our only car.  i get off enough shifting
my six speed bikes.  it used to be a dealbreaker for me, though.  if my
lease offer had been on a tip, i'd have taken it.  we live in san francisco
though, a very unique place in which to drive.

	reliability of the benzes, though, i can't agree about.
