Just like what i said before, It's just better to have an auto, if i had a choice between an automatic 540 or 6spd, i'd get the auto because it would allow my stock twin turbo spooler setup to wind faster and make louder noise due to less bushings inside my crank axle distribution capaciter chamber, thus more power, because we all know..

more noise = more power

Imagine missing a gear with all those horses - A mate of mine was racing his renault5 turbo (which had been tuned to the max) when he mis-shifted accelerating out of a bend it wasn't a pretty sight as his engine blew.

That's probably not the reason he bought an auto but at least he won't miss a gear.

Also I was reading an article about a couple of american lads who had super tuned (M5 beaters) i6 e39's. One was an auto and his reasoning was that he'd bought the car BEFORE he even entertained an idea about tuning it (although he now wished he had gone 6 speed - hindsight is a great thing).

Or maybe he didnt feel like having his 3rd car as a stick. He already has a porche and a ferrari, why not have a car that you can cruse and not having to move your left leg so much.

Or he could of just done it just so everyone can waste time discussing it and saying that he cant drive while he laughs all well knowing that every person that see's that car is jelous of it.
