Re. auto / manual. I was going to buy a manual and was expecting the auto to suffer confusion like Audis I have driven. I test drove an auto and a manual and loved the auto. Completely changed my opinion.

1600 miles in and no regrets but I don't dislike the manual at all. I thought it was great. I just preferred the auto.

As Bustofa points out, stop start must kick in a lot less in a manual BUT I still think the manual will be more fuel efficient than the auto despite this
