Sorry man....but that was one of the lamest posts in your defense....you definetely didn't "own" anyone! hahaha sorry....I'm actually sitting here laughing at your futile attempts to justify buying an auto. Anyways, if you really like the auto, or dislike the standards, just say it! No need to get defensive. I'll even go out on a limb here and say that in certian cars I would rather have an automatic....such as a Porsche Turbo Convert....but thats just because they are pimp.
