wrong, this is /o/ garbage think. It was killed because the autos shift faster, are safer, and make the companies more money later in life. Has nothing to do with "muhhhhh lazzzyyy!!!!" The world didn't just magically get lazy overnight fucking retard. The autos just got better. They also meet emissions better (way more gears). So stop being a fucking god damn cock sucking retard, and use your brain.

These are not comparable either.
An electric starter vs hand crank compared to transmission would be closer to comparing a paddle shift with a clutch to a traditional manual.

Autos are gay, they're worse at everything and don't know what the driver wants or needs at any moment.

Manuals can now rev match on their own. Manuals can still select any gear at any time
>>
>>20686039
Technology, simple as that. Paddle shifters are flat out better and manual is a drag in bumper to bumper. The only people who prefer manual are those who view it as some type of elitist thing they can use to look down on other drivers because they equate not preferring manual to not knowing how to drive it.

Don't worry, in time they will be seen for the luddites they are and only low end manufacturers will target them, with maybe one or two niche manufacturers shitting out slightly nicer replica models. Manual transmission is to cars what lever action is to rifles - infererior in every way, but beloved because hipsters pine for a bygone era.

This, recently bought a new bmw 125i in a hurry because i really fucking needed a replacement daily driver quickly. From 2018-19 it only comes out with auto untill it will transition to fwd (kek) in 2020. There is a manual optional fitting but it costs like 2000€ on top of car retail price.
Fuck that.
>>
>>20686065
>Shift faster
Oh wow, now they can let their shitbox truly rip
>Are safer
How come? They allow for less attention to be put on driving, since all you have to do is "press go pedal to go, press stop pedal to stop", you don't have to keep your mind on the traffic flow/your next action when driving
>More economic
In what? Purchase price? Because a manual transmission is simpler and has less sensors than the simplest auto
In maintenance? Guess what, a manual transmission will have service intervals (read: change the fluid) every 50k miles or so (unless you're an absolute retard with the clutch). And if the few sensors it can have (reverse switch, neutral/gear indicator/speedometer) fail it's fucking nothing and you can drive just fine with it. An automatic will shit itself if it doesn't have the necessary inputs/data, or if a simple solenoid shits the bed (happened to a good friend of my dad, his RAV4 wouldn't engage 3rd/4th gear or something, was offered a complete brand new trans since the little solenoid wasn't available through Toyota, went through hell for weeks because mechanics at the local Toyota center are complete morons/wanted to scam him, and other places didn't have the necessary scan tools, then had to ask for the part and have it installed abroad)

>Make the companies more money later in life
There ya go, that's the point (besides getting normies who see driving as divine punishment to buy their cars). It's more expensive to purchase, maintain, requires specific dealer-only tools and scanners, and is seen as even more esoteric and delicate than a normal transmission

Living in a 3rd world country where every-fucking-body knows how to drive manual, the TV spots for cars with auto trans are clearly geared towards first-time female buyers and (in the case of pickups) old people with mobility problems (fucked up knees) or as a "luxury item" that their asphalt queen truck now offers
>>
>>20686039
Manuals arent dead, they just smell funny.

Realistically, automatic transmissions are hard to beat when it comes to shift times, mindless operation, and overall efficiency for the everyday driver.
Not to mention, manuals make it harder to implement modern features like start/stop, remote start, auto braking, adaptive cruise, etc.
All of this adds up to make manual-equipped cars less fuel efficient than their automatic counterparts.

accessibility.

learning manuals is difficult. it's an additional step that isn't required when an automatic is available. even as someone that loves manuals i can recognize their ease of use, especially during heavy traffic and when not on the open road. you start with fleet vehicles such as buses and trucks for which you need to hire people it's easier to find the employee you need when they dont need that additional skill. it trickles down to the mainstream from there. pair this with manuals now being surpassed in performance by automatics and a waning knowledge of how to even use manuals and there you go.

tl:Dr >>20686044

>>
>>20687435

i live in LA, honestly i had stick shift and the traffic was just unbearable in peak traffic. After a 12hr work day you dont want to be shifting in bumper to bumper traffic from 1 to 2nd gear for an hour or more. automatics are just more convenient, stick is still fun on the weekends or for short amounts of time,but not for a daily

It's a perfect analogy you stupid nigger, lever action rifles are still popular and widely used because they offer "fuck this grizzly and the tree behind him" levels of firepower in an extremely compact and lightweight package. AR15s aren't chambered for the more archaic cartridges which can deal with big game. Autotragics will never offer the level of engagement that rowing through the gears yourself does.

I suppose these days auto transmissions are more reliable, but every auto car I've owned has had a transmission problems. I'm done with this shit and getting a manual personally.

But I think the biggest problem is just how driving isn't as important in our culture as it used to be. You don't "drive," anymore, everyone "commutes." A car is something that gets you from point A to point B. Because our culture has shunned it. I'm lucky enough that this place, Initial Dicks, and some friends have made me realize how much more car has to offer than to just commute, but people don't want any problems with their car. They want to get in, drive somewhere without a problem, and leaving. Not like they aren't justified, but because of our commuter mindset, traffic is always stressful. (Smart phones don't help) So, that's just how it works out.

Couple problems here:

1.) .45-70 is an obsolete meme round that offers no benefit over newer, better performing, flatter shooting cartridges.

2.) AR pattern rifles are available in many of these chamberings, especially if you remember that the AR-10 is a thing and can accommodate much larger rounds. Even an AR-15 can at least accept .458 SOCOM or .50 Beowulf if you needed a fuckhuge bullet with lots of energy. If you went with an AR-10 there's massively superior options over anything you could get in a lever action.

I stand by my original comparison. Lever action and manual transmission are both garbage for entry level hipsters who think it marks them as more skilled/refined when all it does is mark you as a retard that bought an inferior product.

Automatics have been better for a while now, and will continue to get better. Manuals and their primitive human operation is childlike, inefficient, and has a foreseeable upper limit while Automatics have none of these problems.

People that swear by manuals are literally only doing so because they are attempting to prove to their imaginary rivals that their cocks are indeed sufficient. Do not be bothered by these people, they are weak and can offer you nothing in life.

People who drive MT cars do it literally on "autopilot" so they don't even think of up/downshifting. You only think of the whole press clutch>upshift>release clutch when you're a novice.

>start/stop
it's as easy as having a lever position switch and only stopping the engine when the lever is on N.
>adaptive cruise
PSA offers adaptive cruise in their MT cars as long as you're on 4th gear.
>less fuel-efficient
That depends on the driver. ATs win only because their computers are designed to be efficient.

>PSA offers adaptive cruise in their MT cars
Ford does too, at least in the Mustang
>ATs win only because their computers are designed to be efficient.
And they have more gears, which gives them greater ability to stay in optimal rpm range

as soon as the mileage on an auto matched or bettered the mileage on a standard, the manual was relegated to a purely aesthetic choice

>And yes, in Europe, only actual cripples drive Automatic, cripples and VERY old people.

By that logic, Europe has had a steady rise in old people and cripples in the last few years. Before only 1 in 4 people were cripple or old. These days it's now 1 in 3 is cripple/old. In 5 years, the number of registered vehicles in Europe with automatic transmissions will have surpassed the manuals.

How hard is it to learn stick lads?

>>20694054
I learned how to drive stick in a VW sandrail when I was like 12. It's easy.

>>20694054
Once you figure out how to modulate the clutch it's pretty damn easy
>>
>>20689139
Like Peugeot/Citroen cars built before 2010. Their shitty "maintenance-free" automatic transmissions (AL4/4HP20) tend to fail before 100.000 km
>>
>>20692564
>auto transmissions are more reliable
They are if you check the ATF level and color every 20000 mi

>>20686039
People only want to buy vehicles with remote start, adaptive cruise controller, backup assist, any other crutch they can use to prevent them from using their underdeveloped brain. A lot harder to implement with a manual. Corporations seeking to maximize profits and minimize investments; this is why niche markets are dying in pretty much every field. Shareholders only care about their stocks and try to prevent corps from seeking anything that is less than maximum possible revenue. Manual sales are probably less than 10% of a given cars sales so they don’t even waste the time, effort, or money. Yuppie marketing school fags have single handedly destroyed capitalism.

The Buggati Veyron was a car that metamorphosed hypercars forever. This is without a doubt the first mainstream automatic hypercar, and its transmission played a key role in gaining its iconic status. Rappers, celebrities, and Saudi oil princes could flaunt off their 10 million dollar car and be able to drive it, too. Before this, most exotic hypercars were exclusively M/T, which relegated their market share to a tiny niche of people who both had a disposable income and could drive stick. Don't believe me? Look at every rap music video before 2005, and notice how every car they flaunted was either a Cadillac Escalade, a Lincoln Navigator, or less occasionally a Hummer H2, all three of which were fairly expensive, automatic only status symbol cars. Ever since the Veyron set record sales and earned a place in popular culture, "Bugatti" has entered the dictionary of every rapper past, present, and future and namedropped all the time.

people who actually thing the memes are true, are newags. plain and simple.
