Hehe. Automatics feel clunky and distant. With my standard I feel like I'm sorta plugged into the nervous system of my car. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!I absolutely cannot give up my stick shift.
And hell yes I love driving. I usually end up zoning out if I know where I'm going and suddenly I'm at the destination. Kinda scary....I don't remember getting there....but I did!
