    Re: Roll Call! Who drives a MANUAL transmission?

    Manuals Forever!! IMO they make driving fun.

    Sure some Dual Clutch Autos, automatic and PDK's might be quicker in shifting, however, are BORING once you drive stick.

    I crack up about autos being able to "BLIP" the throttle when going in a lower gear. That is the computer doing that.

    For manual users that's called heal and toe downshift. If the car has only 2 Pedals then that is called an automatic to me.

    Manual all the way!!

    I call it heel/toe because I'm not healing anyone.

    and I agree with you too.

    I'm glad you thought it was funny because I actually laughed out loud when I read his response.

    I'm thrilled to see so many manual drivers here!

    Unfortunately you're right. I'm sure you've heard by now the next Audi S4 will be DSG only.

    Here's the thing...if we keep buying them, the manual transmission will not fade away completely.

    Re: Roll Call! Who drives a MANUAL transmission?

    I've had three cars so far in life and all of them have been manuals!

    Currently it's a 2007 BMW 335i coupe, 6mt.
