That is a good question. I have the clutchless automatic in mine...so I cannot say much about SMG. Although, I will say I enjoy picking my way through the gears sometimes and other times letting the auto transmission do it.

Having had manual tranny cars beofre I cannot say I miss much except maybe the locomotion of using my left foot when I change gears.

I think the whole argument is similiar to the single malt vs. blended scotch argument. Everyone jsut assumes that single malts are the best without trying any blends.
