"ewwww granite countertops, that's a deal breaker."


Not sure where you are so can't comment too much but granite tops have been more than a little passe for a least 10 years now. You're looking for Corian and reconstituted stones in modern kitchens, through to solid timbers for more traditional country bumpkin ones.

Wow, I had no idea that obsolete tech like manual transmissions were still in heavy use around the world. Love this thread.

Ask anyone who enjoys driving and at least 90% of them will prefer a manual transmission. My current car is auto and while it's easier in the city where most of my driving is I do miss having a manual transmission, there is a lot more feel and control there. A lot of autos have a manual shift these days however it's just not the same. If the technology was up to it when I bought this car I would've gone with a DSG but I just don't have the money to replace a gearbox if it fails. However give it 5 years and dual clutch transmissions will likely render both Autos and Manuals obsolete.
