Flip a coin, it's that easy. If you've driven both types, then all you really need to think about is how you will be driving the Z. Is it for commuting, for fun, to share, etc?
5AT= 5 speeds :wink: :rolf2:Exactly.. If your area is all about traffic and you'll be driving all the time in it.. You may prefer an auto.
If you are into auto x , you may find the gears to be favorable to a MT.
Either way, you'll be happy.
The MT have a 3.5 final drive, they are 6 speed.
The AT have a 3.2 final drive, they are 4 speed. (i think)
I beg to differ! Ever been to the track? I have. And my 5AT rocks out! I love not having to mess w/ shifting (I didn't even use the tiptronic) while learning to drive on the track. :wink: And btw you can't pick "kids" up from soccer practice in the Z, esp if they are under the weight limit....air bags + only one kid fit there in that one seat :wink:An auto is great if you use the Z to buy groceries or pick up the kids from soccer practice.
But if you really wanna DRIVE your car the way it was meant to then you must get the manual.
Never Auto X, but I plan to, right now I am going to concentrate on learning how to drive the road course....but Chris (illZ33) will teach me one day on the Auto X too! I have read that it's fine to leave the AT in 2nd on the auto x courses, but I would assume it depends on the course set up, chris can add comments on this.....Do any of you AutoX with an auto?
Thanks for all the response!!
HM you are correct! :clap: :yourock:I've never heard any of the AT owners complaining about rattling from the fly, etc. I don't know if that means they don't have the issue, but I've read a few MT people complaining about parts that seem to be only on the MT. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please
