The 1st gear in these autos is so low that you can creep it along most of the time without hitting the brakes. But, if you have to it's an easy step on the gas without wearing out your left leg if you'd have to clutch a 1000 times on the way home. It was getting that bad on my 25min turned into 1:30 mins return home ride.
Now, I can simply let it creep and hit the brake every so often. It still takes the same 1:30 mins to return home somedays (~2-3 days a week) but, my left leg / knee are not sore when I get home anymore. I figure the auto Z will save me a knee replacement at the very least.
yep, exactly why I can't do manual anymore. I have a metal plate in my left ankle and driving a m6 in manhattan traffic is torture. the 7at does the job of replicating the fun of the manual just fine
