Auto or Manual?

Which 'box offers the smoothest and easiest drive do you think? Mostly town driving with the occasional longer trips for holidays and days out.

Haven't tried the manual, but the auto box is sublimely smooth.

My first Mercedes (acquired over 20 years ago) had a manual box and I was surprised how poor it was. Since then I have always settled for an auto and would certainly recommend that option.

I would also pick auto these days it is so much better and smoother than a manual car.

I have a Manual 200 petrol as the wife prefers them and the 6 speed gear box is very good however I must admit I think the auto would probably be smoother ,,I have a BMW auto and its sublime,,,
I do think having a petrol or diesel makes a difference also in manuals the latter being worse to drive imop.
