What about automatics with full manual control only?

Rant marked 1/10.

Lack of extreme hyperbole, absence of excessive swearing and proper spelling all counted against.

You also left out 'dont you know who I am'.

I agree with Westy, if you want to see a proper rant find one of 3pedals posts about automatic gearboxes.

And, sorry, but SMG = Sequential Manual Gearbox, emphasis being on the MANUAL part of the words :ph34r:

Thread point missed. It's just a thread for quick rants about things that annoy you. Light hearted.

Pants. Next week is retire shorts and jandel work attire.

People who park next to you when there are plenty of free spaces that aren't immediately beside me.

People who park too far away from the fuel pump so that a second car can't get in.

People who don't indicate at roundabouts (Euros at Ayr St./Shore Rd. Intersection this means you!)

If there was emphasis it would be written SMG. Although I think SMG is cool, It's automating the process for you, so imo not manual. But thats just my interpretaion.

Manual to me means a gearbox where I have to use my foot to depress the clutch to engage a gear. I don't want any help with that thank you.

My rant - Vodafone.

This happens to me at McDonalds. I've all the time in the world to decide while waiting in line and then I get to the counter and panic and order the same thing as always. I'm not ready for this type of responsibility.

It should be Semi-Manual-Gearbox because it's knob is only half the length.

I have the sprintshift in the Merc MH which is a manual gearbox controlled by a computer and the clutch working off hydraulics. It can drive in Auto & Manual. The MH weighs in at over 3 tons and changing gears manualy and having engine braking makes driving it a dream. The 2.2 TDI engine has a sh*t load of grunt which combined with the trans makes it a pleasure to drive long distances. I must also add.... I don't hold up traffic 100kph full time no problems just need to slow down in the twisties as you would in a car. I can also run at about 15-20 kph over the recommended speeds indicated on road signs.

Whoops... that went well over my head. /back on topic

My rant would have to be //M badges on non-M Sport cars, and not in the right place - pedantic much?
