Driving an automatic on the other hand irks me because I can't predict (the same way I do with a manual) what dose of acceleration I am getting. It just doesn't feel right. So in the end I don't care if there is traffic or not.
Did you test drive the sports auto on an F10? It literally has nothing in common with any "auto" made before it.

I get all this but if you are getting NAV (or even if don't in my case) you will be in that iDrive all the time so keep that in mind.
