we all know sticks are more fun to drive, unless you live in hill country. With stoplights on the hill.

I was just wondering if people could chime in on the quality of the auto transmission.

and your reason??

Robert

PS, keep it tech, not just how much more fun it is to drive a 5 speed. My jeep scrambler is a 5-speed.

I have an opportunity to buy a RED S4, and it's auto.

i am the least technical person on this board.

from a performance standpoint, it won't make a difference.

the automatic transmissions are a 3 speed BMW ZF which matches well with the engine.

i would have preferred a 5 speed but purchased an automatic since i knew the original owner.

i don't have any regrets.

do a search, this topic has been previously discussed:

I was originally looking for an automatic, but ended up with a 5 speed. I have driven both, and would be happy with either one. I have to admit, for wanting an automatic, I like the 5 speed very much. As Lambert stated, the auto is matched very well to the engine.

Good Luck,

Kevin
