Yes. I prefer paper maps anyway

Has anyone here driven an automatic Porsche with a Tiptronic?
That system is an automated manual. This is a automatic with a manual mode. Completely different. A automated manual is for pure performance. This is a way to give you more control over an automatic -but its still an automatic at heart. Much like AWD vs 4wd. On the surface they are similar but for going all out there is no comparison between the two.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
