Am considering an automatic (god forbid me from myself). Am a die hard stick shift fanatic but I have seriously started to consider whether my foot tendon problems are due to too much shifting in my 6 cylinder Mazda 626. Then again, it may be that my current car has a hard clutch. I could not test drive a single 328i stick shift since my dealer did not have any. For now, I have ordered it with an automatic - any thoughts for someone who lives in a metropolitan area with constant shifting. Any thought from people who have had similar withdrawal symptoms. I hope I do not feel ashamed of looking like a yuppie with a leather upholstered sport packaged black 328i with an automatic transmission.
