    The wing and the vents/flares need to be toned down, but nice...

    It's still an Automatic. Paddle shifters don't make it a manual or an automatic, torque converters vs. electrohydraulic clutches do.

    My guess is it would be similar to the "trip-tronic" technology? Our car has it... no clutch, but you can manually shift the transmission.... Looks like that's how this one works

    Bleh, shifting is the best part. I'll take a manual gearbox and a full second slower in the 0-60.

    oh I'd prefer a manual too, but you can't complain when your 500+ hp benz only comes in auto :lol:

    I hate MB but thats a pretty stout pkg. But it still kills me that they don't use a manual box or at least an electro hydraulically box like Pat was saying. I'm still a big fan of shifting for myself, but next up would be an SMG. The BMW paddle shift is pretty sweet, not great at low speeds but when you dial it in and put the car in sport mode it does a pretty good job.
