    Count so far...

    R/S-TRonic x 4
    Manual Stick x 10

    Looks like the manual guys are more passionate on their choice of transmission, at all age group!

    I learned a long time ago to stay away from trannies with a stick.

    44 and drive S-T V10 plus.
    Would have preferred a manual but only a very small number of manual V10 pluses sold in U.K. and a large proportion were press demonstrators.
    Always drive the S-T in Sport Manual.

    From he who said "I don't want paddles". Welcome to the clutchless club.

    52 physical years, 35 mentally.
    First two were manual which showed me just how much I like NOT having a clutch pedal. Paddles all the way!

    26 and have a manual. I do enjoy the feel and connection to the car, but as someone else mentioned, it does get tedious.

    I would say i'm still undecided to this day. Had a DCT M3 before which I thought was great, but then got back into a manual R8 and realised i'd missed the manual.

    Auto for daily duties and manual for real driving. 36 btw.

    Mid 30s, r tronic. Me and wife learned driving licenses in slushboxes, never touched a manual. When I first learned about cars, I thought the paddles were so cool. All cars are shared between us so never considered manual

    34yo, 2014 V10 Spyder w/S-Tronic. 99% of the time driven in sport manual.

    I'd take the S-Tronic over the manual again if I were replacing it tomorrow.
