how are manuals worth more than autos?

Recommended Posts

To my understanding automatics are worth more than manuals. But every manual head seems to think otherwise. Prove to me why you are right. Ill start the debate off with the fact that automatic transmissions have more parts. Are more advanced in tech. And more expensive to produce overall. So how would a manual akyline be worth more than an auto lol. And autos have tiptronic. Best of both worlds.

I don't think auto Skylines are cheaper. If you buy one you need to buy a manual gearbox and all the other components to install it. 

Definitely cheaper to buy an already manual skyline lol

Resale of a 20yr old car isn't linked to initial rrp.

 

Supply and demand.

I would be inclined to give a real answer but there's no point in answering when it's clear it's just in search of affirmation. OP probably bought an auto Skyline and is now experiencing buyer's remorse.

OP has never driven a good manual car. Autos are wonderful for freeway driving on cruise the family and stop start traffic. That's it, manual is better for driving fun everywhere else.  (oh Auto better for drags).

Manuals are better for track, twisting roads, even freeway pulls. Double clutching, heel and toe, clutch in revs, choosing your own RPM for launches, flicking the lever through a fast change at the cutout. All these things bring me great joy and satisfaction. 

Autos are for when I am not interested in driving for fun and simply want to arrive at my destination without any interest in being a hoon or having fun.

For what it's worth, a slushbox GTR would suck in my opinion.

Nah. Family life. I'll drive very nicely with them on-board. Currently looking for a car to drive itself down the freeway... (V60 or Model 3 maybe).

GTR though... yeah. Some of my antics cannot be discussed here without me getting in super duper double trouble. lol just like the rest of you!

Yeah, best of both worlds, until something breaks.

Also auto normally does what it wants, not what your want. Also likes to be lazy, sap a lot more engine power, and die randomly, giving you a fun time towing and fixing it.

Given that, my latest car is a 2series BMW with 8 speed auto. Will be fun fixing that.

Because they are drivers cars. No one wants an automatic Skyline, 200sx, 180sx, WRX, EVO or RX7.

Millennials do.....apparently.....
