I've driven them, they are the best automatics ever, but still not the
same as having a stick.

Well, technically, they aren't 'automatics' but 'automated manuals'.... ;-)  Splitting hairs, I know, but
it really is an important difference. I'm sure plenty of people will just leave them in 'auto' mode, which
is really a shame.
