Default Tiptronic Auto Trans vs. Stick

I was looking to buy a Jetta 1.8T and it had a Tiptronic Auto Trans. I drove
it and it felt pretty cool but i dont know if it would perform better than
stick. Which one should i choose?Thanks for your opinion.

That would probably depend on what kind of driving you are going to be doing
and personal preference. I drive cars that are really old and have high
miles... and manual transmissions seem to be less problematic. And I like
driving them more.... so I'd choose the sticky shift.

Tiptronic is cool, but it's not for people who like manual transmissions.
There is no substitute to driving a manual. Tiptronic is for the men and/or
woman that have to have a car that their non dual-mode significant others
can also drive :-) (In My Opinion). Tiptronics are fun, but in my opinion
I'd rather drive a real manual than a fake one :-)
