    I've got the JBL speaker system in mine and that sounds amazing.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

And now I couldn't keep pace, so stepped on the throttle. Which made it shift to a lower gear again, making me catch up too fast. Couldn't find the sweet spot and it just kept shifting up and down on me like that as I just tried to keep pace with the car ahead. Was nearly screaming with rage at the damn thing before I got to the top.
    But that's exactly what doesn't happen anymore with DSG gearboxes, you don't even notice when the car shifts, there's not anymore that 2 second gap before the car has shifted 1 gear down. How old is that car?

    Autos do take a bit of getting use to though as you do tend to need to drive them a little differently to manuals. Getting used to Kickdown is something too.

    Nice car! Like the colour and the wheels.

    Most cars out in Australia are auto, and they are piss easy to drive. It's really laid back. We came back to the UK recently for a visit and I borrowed Lady T's Dad's car, again an auto.

    I think that I'd go for an auto again, unless I was getting a little sports roadster or something like that.

    JT mate, you are sounding more Australian by the day.

    Ha ha

    My dad loved driving an auto too. I think for everyday driving, it really is so very convenient. I never thought I'd be saying that, but here we are.
