Was flicking through an Auto Express magazine when I saw an article on new car sales with automatic gear boxes and I've found said article online...

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/102640/it-won-t-be-long-before-automatics-outnumber-manual-car-sales

Really loving the automatic mode on my Smart while not being a conventional automatic more of an automated manual it still drives like an automatic i.e. no clutch pedal.

They reckon automatic sales will soon overtake manual ones.

With the congestion levels on many UK roads that's not surprising - but sad because IMHO being able to manually change gear smoothly is a skill worth learning and practising.

Having said that I want my next car to be at least an automated manual...
