Automatic vs. Manuel
I would think it depends mostly on the type of driving you want to do. I think you are looking for a diesel. Right? I imagine that driving a diesel would be tough enough without the shifting. I would think a stick shift would just be a reminder of how long it takes to get through each gear. Then again, don't they get better MPG?
With a stick in a gas vehicle, I think that the revving can be fun, in a sporty way (not in a diesel way). You know what I mean?
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
