Half the fun of this car is the ability to row your own gears. I would say you go with the manual unless its really that bad in spain.

Playing with gears is something I love. Here in Spain all cars, almost all, are manual and how to take off the Driver's manual car. Some cars come with automatic transmission, but most are or Gt cars and high-performance features that come standard: Volvo, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porche, Jaguar. Automatic this car is as good as in Manual?

The auto is faster and not like any auto I have driven, disregard the knuckleheads about manual vs. Auto, they fail to realize some people have disabilities that don't allow them to drive a manual.

So you're saying you would need to be disabled (which I'll take to mean more broadly: unqualified for some reason whether physical or otherwise) to justify having the automatic; therefore, manual the superior option for those who are not inhibited?

It's not an issue if you're required to drive an automatic due to disability, inability, or personal preference. However, you should acknowledge that car enthusiasts' general consensus that true driving is done with a standard transmission (the name alone should give it away). Chevy makes both for the ZL1, you pick your fate.

I love my manual transmission, I am grateful to my God for the good years I have had to enjoy this toy, unfortunately due to a degenerating back condition it seems that I am going to be forced to make my next car an auto, huge bummer for me, but I do not see away around yet. Helly kitty with an auto sounds like a nice choice. I hope I don't catch any flack for my auto, Because no doubt manual is the way to drive these cars.

ni de cerca, aunque la caja automatica del camaro es MUY BUENA, los carros europeos y con sus sistemas de doble clutch y otras cosas son mucho mas fluidos y rapidos

If you dont have enough to hold on to between your legs, get a stick. For those of us who arent lacking in that department get an auto. When your on vacation in a traffic jam the auto allows you to relax and know that your in charge of your destiny. If you want to be reminded of when you were in high school and couldnt afford shit for luxury get a MANual. They say that you are a MAN if you drive a MANual. However the guy that cuts my grass every week and washes my cars is MANuel. You decide.

If you measure your manhood by manual or automatic I feel sorry for you. Drum brakes used to be a great thing too.

la decision para mi seria en base a esto: si planeas correrlo muy a menudo, y sabes usar bien la caja para esto, compra el manual. pero si planeas correrlo y todavia no sabes usar bien los cambios en forma deportiva O si aunque quieres correrlo quieres que en ciudad la cosa vaya un poco mas relajada, un automatico es el indicado

(translate) my decision would be based on this : if you plan to track it regularly and you know how to properly use a gearbox in the track, go manual. But if you plan to track it and dont know how to use the gearbox in kind of sport mode OR you want to track it but want to relax when driving on the city, go auto

It's comments like these (for or against either transmission) that make people argue about which is better.
Also, your comment is incredibly insulting to the OP, who is clearly of Spanish descent. Your opinion just became irrelevant.

Exactly.

Like it's been said countless times across the forum. STANDARD transmission is the majority of car enthusiasts' PREFERENCE time and time again. Fact. End of story.

Auto works for some people, for one reason or another, and it really doesn't matter how many euphemisms you try to associate with the manliness of driving Standard vs Auto because that simply doesn't have anything to do with it. Just pick what you want and go on your way.
