This is a poll if you own a 2018 Mustang GT - do you own a manual or an automatic car?

Make your selection to vote!

**ALSO** - If you have a manual car with an aftermarket clutch - post or PM what clutch you're running - I'm really curious what aftermarket clutches people are running.

There are already innumerable MT vs AT threads. None of them end well.
You mean because the wimps that can't drive a stick get all butt-hurt? :crying:

I guess I'm not familiar with all those abbreviations on the forum. I'll google it when I get home. Just curious what % of MT's are out there for 2018 personally.

**edit** - I googled those and still have no idea what you're trying to say. And I was definitely not wanting to start an auto vs manual war, if that's what you meant, although I can't control the content of others.

In the UK it's about 55% stick v 45% the others. Depends which country or region you are asking

Thanks! It's early to tell but it seems like a roughly 50% distribution with initial responses. I'm curious to see how it plays out - and I/m personally glad to see there's still lots of manual cars out there.

I'm so confused by what you mean here. Please elaborate.
Here's how this thread is gonna go.
Post 1. I drive manual
Post 2. Why autos are faster.
Post 3. But it takes more skill to drive a manual
Post. 4. A monkey could drive a manual!
Post 5. Autos are for women.
Post 6. Manuals are for dudes that like sticks in their hands.
Post 7. I feel more connected to the vehicle & the road with a manual.
Post. 8. But your still slow.
Post 488. Bla bla bla.....

Manual transmissions are for people nostalgic about a time long gone. Automatic transmissions are better in every measurable way.

Convince me I'm wrong.

I like both, I owned a 2015 GTPP and now I own a 2018 GTPP with a 10r80. No regrets but I do occasionally miss rowing gears.

The difference is not between transmissions, but among drivers. The measurable differences in both scenarios are of minimal importance as is whatever opinion you might have about the virtues of either. I agree, it was a trap, but I'm not convnced it was intended that way.

What's interesting to me is that among the Mustang responders the division is close enough to half and half as to be insignificant. That is a long way from overall automobile users' choices.
