    If you make up 20% of new car purchasers, then I guess Ian is right.

    Agreeing with Ian about driver abilities etc. and agreeing with you regarding the need for the ultra high performance cars of today NEEDING to have nanny aids etc.
    BTW the 456 was the fastest Ferrari at our last Motorkahna, against the newer and faster models.....just sayin’

    It was bloody close! It wouldn’t have just been the car that wasn’t written off.

    Yep me too, I love my 360 but feel a bit left out. I'd never buy any thing newer than a 360 as I'd prefer a manual. I'm still open to swapping :eek:

    The Styling is awkward but it was designed for the tuners in mind and SEMA proves it. I have a good friend who is at the show.

    I respect everyone's opinion and having a preference is fine, but I really find the desperate need to link a manual gearbox to "proper driver / enthusiast" pathetic.

    Frankly, it's just total wank. There'd be plenty of drivers out there whom prefer the newer gearboxes (or don't give a **** either way) who could drive rings around every one of you.

    Absolutely correct. But, the majority of the drivers I see buying new ultra high powered super cars, are safer with the new boxes. There is no argument that the new cars, with a manual box, would be slower around a track. It’s a given.
    And you certainly don’t need to be an ace driver to prefer a manual box.
