We had one on a BMW, and it took ages to change gear - much better with a manual.

We have the auto box and paddles on our MCS. I was sceptical at first but now would not consider a manual. Gear changing is silky smooth, great fun using the paddles (as you control the up and down shift) especially if driving quickly in sport mode , or effortless in town traffic just letting the auto box do it's own thing

I always thought that they would be just like having an auto, only paddle shift ive driven is on a saab and that was rather crap. Would have liked to got one for my cooper S but the extra cost put me off!

I have never driven an S with flappy padle gearbox BUT I have driven a ferrari 360 with flappy padle gearbox. I have never smiled so much in my whole life when you pull it towards you and the car kicks you in the back as it accelerates off again!
