I dunno. The way sequential shift gear boxes are going, and how much FASTER they are than manuals.... I don't know. I don't find that statement to be completely without truth.

If it is faster and better, why are you NOT doing it? Unpolluted driving experience is one thing, but better performing is another all together. That, and when the Mfg gets to decide how/when the car is shifted, they will be all over that.

Aren't some cars with a Manual gearbox MORE expensive now than their automatic counterparts?
