    44y and RT.. and prefere the RT, but realize that the manual holds its value better..

    Do not track my R8, but I would never buy the Cayman R that I also drive and use on the track with PDK as it is less involving...

    R-Tronic for fun
    (DD manual)

    I do not miss the clutch pedal at all.. some times feel to play around with the shift knob using it more like a manual box.. taking out the hand from the steering wheel.. some times feel to focus on the road.. both hands on the steering and play with the paddles

    41 and manual. All my previous cars were manual too. Bought the R8 because it was the last year they were making it with manual.

    Mid-30's, S-Tronic.

    While I can drive stick, I'm never going to put the effort in to be GREAT at it. Meanwhile, I enjoy the versatility of a gearbox that can be a casual/lazy cruiser or a fast, high-tech racer.

    I'm 61. I'm pretty sure I was 45 a half-hour ago, if you know what I mean. I've mainly driven manuals over the past four decades, including this R8. People complain about the hassle. I don't see it. When you've driven manual cars as long as I have, you don't consciously think about shifting gears or pumping the clutch pedal, but you do appreciate the greater control over the car.

    Yeah, today's double clutches are a tad quicker. Hell, I drove a PDK 991s a couple months ago that probably would have smoked this car in Sport Plus mode, but I couldn't care less when the vast majority of my time is spent on urban roads going light to light. I'd rather enjoy the involvement of going through the gears or zoning out if I want, always knowing I'm in control.

    Updated tally...

    Age/transmission: Manual/RT/ST

    20-30:
    Manual - 2 (sapien2, Jgold2790,
    Auto - 0 (no responses)

    30-40:
    Manual - 6 (sclegend, tarverines, WinterRunner, flsupraguy, racerex, MarcR8)
    Auto - 5 (Audislave ST, kiryu RT, jf1 ST, redfire RT, ezmaass ST)

    40-50:
    Manual - 4 (pompeyreece, wh921, Dimitri, beamon)
    Auto - 6 (HowieR8 RT, Mavster RT, Itsjohn DD, PAR8 RT, gasman mark ST, stormdk RT)

    50-60's:
    Manual - 4 (Frax, Trev450, RS4Cab, James88, low2ground)
    Auto - 1 (KfabR8 ST)

    Based on the small sampling, it would appear:

    20-40's the manual is quite popular.
    40-50's the auto is prefered.
    50's above manual is prefered.

    54, Manual... more involving and fun, direct connection with the car but PIA in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Would consider S-Tronic but happy with MT
