"When the driver knows how to change gear the synchros do not wear out"
You have that, in part, correct, as actually the synchros do wear just a little just from normal operation, but the wear is minimal, and unless really abused, should satisfactorily last the life of the car.
Some might think maybe you really desire a full automatically driving car as there is little difference between that and a car with a modern automatic transmission, lane control, emergency braking, etc, except a modicum of steering in and out of your driveway, lol.
Some would also call that pretty boring.
