It's a shame seeing folks use traffic as their only excuse to get a step. As if the only people who are allowed to get a stick are those who don't drive through traffic.
Okay, who in the entire USA doesn't drive through traffic? Everyone and their mother does. Unless you live in Montana, you are going to drive through traffic with your car...there's no way around it. So stop using that lame excuse and get the tranny that puts more horses to the ground!
By the way, stick shift rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :flipoff:
It is a shame that this bothers you so much, everyone buys what they want for their own reasons. Well guess what, the big reason I bought the step is because of traffic, so please dont tell me that it is a lame reason, it is MY
choice and not yours. If you can handle your traffic fine good for you, if Id rather enjoy the comfort and conveniance of my step in traffic, than good for me. Seriously why do you care so much what reason someone buys what they feel is best suited for them??? :thumbdwn:
To answer the question of the thread starter, if you want more fun then the manual is truly a better option.
If you dont like driving a stick in traffic, or youre just lazy, or you cant drive a manual, or you actually like step better, or you dont want to piss off other members of this board who only consider Manual BMW drivers as true enthusiats then by all means get the stick:thumbup:
- also manuals have better gas milage.
