In theory, 3 should give you better acceleration, because with less gears used you will hit a higher RPM before the car will shift again... You could also try '2', and then when it revved up high, switch to 3, and then D manually - this should almost give you the 'manual' effect.
If you do drive in the '3', let off the gas for a while, and after several moments you will feel the 'braking effect' (especially when the car downshifts to the 2nd gear).
92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.
