Just curious and bored, so made this thread. If you've seen the Post Your Ride(s) thread, you know I drive a 6-speed manual and have for a few years. Love it - total control, great for racing & spirited driving, etc. But we've come to a point where we are seeing the transmission evolve to 7-speed (or more) automatics with paddle shifters, multiple driving modes, rev-matching technology, and so on. This may actually change my preference. So, I'm curious: Which do you prefer and why? Please vote & respond. Let the discussion begin!
