I'm a little the other way.

I have the opinion that anthing under ~200hp should have a manual to keep the "fun to drive" portion of my driving up. I'm doing so much highway commuting with this car, the 6th gear in the Automatic would be saving me some fuel, and I'm not shifting all that much anyway.

When I was delivering Pizza in the Audi (long story on why I was doing that). The automatic trans there SUCKED. Boring as snot in an already boring scenario. I would've really enjoyed a manual there.
