Exactly! For instance, if I'm approaching a turn I will simply tap down to the gear I want (usually 2nd or 3rd), and power around the conner just like I would in a manual. Granted, I have to keep an eye on my dash to see what gear I'm currently in since it's not really a manual, but I'm getting better and better each day. I'm sure, soon enough, it will just become second nature. Hell, with that said, I find myself driving in either select shift or sport mode almost exclusively for the most part. The only time I really use "D" is on the highway. :-)
