I was about to suggest an "all of the above" option for the poll - you took the words right out of my mouth!

Let's keep it nice and simple. Manual Floorshift gears for me. It gives me a feeling of being in total control.
I have never driven a car with a paddle shift gearbox. Maybe on a racetrack sometime....

Surely Manual for me...its the best and quite efficient if you ask me!! Though I would be kind of intrigued if I was given a Paddle Shift!! It all depends on the engine...manual shifts would be better if the engine werent as powerful.

Floor mounted manual gearshift with short throws. I'm quite happy taking corners with one hand on the wheel and the other on the stick, ready to shift...
Absolutely! Theres only one gearshift for me - A short throw H pattern.
