They are absolutely a terrible design. Probably the worst I've even seen or driven in a manual car. They could have at least put a cup holder in the door panel.

OP - As others have mentioned; It's hard to beat the fun and exhilaration of a manual car; but the auto in this car is stout and nothing like the typical slush box autos. I would have gotten one; but I got a smoking deal on my car and no regrets. Can't go wrong either way.
