All personal choices. Manual/Auto, Colour, Coupe/Fastback/Convertible, style of wheels, new model or classic, accessories etc etc.

For an everyday driver definitely an auto, but a weekend cruiser I get more enjoyment changing gears.
The same applies to LHD in my opinion, I get a kick out of being a bit different.

For RHD I don't care, but in LHD I feel more comfortable in traffic in an auto.
Cheers,
Brian

I love manual regardless the car, but living in Sydney I would choose the auto... too much bloody traffic

My first ever Auto.

I've owned a Mustang and a Camaro before (lived in Canada for 10 years) - both were 4sp manual.

My previous car was an RX8  -6sp manual.

But, driving up and down the Monash Freeway/City Link in Melbourne was giving me the Sh!ts  -1st gear, 2nd gear, 1st gear - repeat.

So, I bought the 6sp auto GT.

Love it.
