Oops. The cruise control was the wrong example .... I personally also would have opted for the cruise control if I would ever have to drive long empty highways (I mean highways where the traffic is movingÖ. not those bumper to bumper things I always drive). Like Ben stated, the sequential gearbox would be perfect (You can turn the auto ON and OFF like the cruise control).
What I only wanted to say is that sometimes you need to make a compromise when trying to combine fun and day to day use. And then I think itís a matter of personal taste what the best works for you. For me itís the auto gearbox, but I would have preferred a Steptronic or better the sequential box.
