Depends what you want to do with the car. Towing, drag racing, city driving? The main complaint with the BTR autos seems to be the gap between first & second gear ratios. Compared to the C4 gearboxes, there's less options when it comes to modifying them (so a transmission specialist tells me).

If you type in 'Auto vs Manual' and search in the Gearbox Forum, you'll find threads debating this.

Here's one:

Maybe that's because you asked for a guy named manuel. Wasn't he the waiter on Fawlty Towers? :D
