|The Tiptronic on the 2.5 is nowhere near what the DGS is. Everyone is going to say Manual. I drive the auto and have not had a single glitch with it...I have seen a lot of QQ'ing about cluches going bad in the 2.5. If you are't going to be racing which hello, yer buying a sportwagon..I'd probably go w/ the Tiptronic. Its reliable, smooth easy to use, wont give you any fuss and gives you plenty of power when you need it! I live in Miami and yah I could get use to the stop and go and be happy with a manual but I'd rather talk on the cell phones, hold my gf's hand, pick my nose scratch my balls or anything else than to constantly go from first to second, stop put the car in neutral..rinse and repeat for 20mins a day.
