The autos are beating up manual tranny nowadays from street legal speed. (Below 60mph) Believe me I test drove a 2016 Mustang GT V8 with 3.75 axle ratio (better lowend torque)
and my Q40x sedan with just a Visconti Ecutek tune, rips it from dead stop up to 70MPH.

The only advantage for manual like the mustang GT is above 60MPG or hwy speed.
I find the manual, no matter how quick you shift, youreally lose momentum. The only reason it was not obvious on youtube video 1/4 run how slow these new GT is , is bec. it is against another manual tranny.

I did not believe this at first, until I test drove a 2016 Mastang GT manual tranny with 3.75 axle ratio. The GT passed the G37 @ 19 secs mark which is beyond 1/4 mile. So if you primary drive in the street auto is the way to go...BTW! I never use my D mode on my Q40. My daily drive is M mode and my off the line pull is in DS mode with less than 3 secs brake torque.


lmao driving a manual is not jus about speed its about experience. obviously u like the experience of the manual thats why u daily ur auto like its a manual?....kinda gay imo

lol. driving an auto in manual mode is the lamest / most boring thing to do. I would rather just stick it on D and drive.

Same with paddles. My previous Q50 had paddles. I played with it for 1 week and got bored of it. And just left it on D and drove for the 2 years.

That's why I picked up a Manual G37. Much more fun to drive. But again, everyone is different.

If you want an auto, You got it. But if I want a manual, my options are limited.

Have you driven in manual mode with the S model? Whole different ballgame. Mine holds the gear until I intervene. Way different than the standard model.

I just got a trade in quote for my 2015 Q60s Limited - boy oh boy does that suck: $26k. Also 6MT, 20k miles. I think I'll chalk this one up to luxury depreciation and stay away from new cars for a while.

Not sure where you guys are getting these near 20k quotes for 2013's.

I was offered $16,000 for my 13 sedan that has 15,000 miles on it. I told them to pound sand. They then came up to $17,500. This was at a Mercedes dealership. Where I needed to buy a cargo van. (metris). I ended up keeping my G and still bought the van at a different dealership for $1700 less. There was no way i'm letting my car go for that cheap.
