Perhaps the latter is not a very good direct comparison though as they are from two different sources. I've owned nothing but manuals my whole life, but after 25 years of shifting myself I am contemplating my first auto box car (could I be getting old???), hence my interest in the difference in performance between the two. Thanks! Daryl
