Someone commented on city driving growing on their nerves in a manual? I love being in traffic with my manual
I rarely need to touch the brakes, and I know that the second I need to change lanes or jump into faster moving traffic that the power is there. With an automatic you can't be as pedal-happy, you may have to wait for the car to gear-down.
However it being your first car, automatic for sure, again, not just because of the ease of learning on an automatic, but definitely because for the first few years it's probably a good idea to not have to worry about anything other than traffic. ESPECIALLY in a gorgeous new car, that will undoubtedly get you tickets.
...I normally cruise the city in 4th gear, I wonder how fast that'll be in the new Camaro...
