Not to mention driving a 2 liter non-turbo boxer F1, no matter what tire you shoe it with.
Really, you cannot compare a CVT impreza (or even an Impreza with a 5 speed) to an F1 to try and win an internet debate, you lose.
CVT is an auto, even with paddle shifters.
Manuals are better if you want to provide driver input to the car, until you hit very high end cars, and your car is not one of those (though if you put a plastic hood scoop and STI wing on it, you can try to make it look like it is)
