It doesn't take much to get used to, because it's not like a traditional gear shift where you have to pop a clutch or something. It's literally more like pressing a button on a video game. The car does the rest for you. And like Elissa said, when you're driving a $280,000 car that has a computer system smarter than most humans, unless you're very experienced with paddle shifting, the car will actually do a better job shifting for you in automatic mode. So why not remove one additional learning curve and spend that time having fun driving the car?
When you're spending $389 for six laps, I don't want to spend one of them learning a new system that I don't really need to.
I'm with you. I could have got my car with the paddle shifters but what was the point. It was all electronic shifting anyway. No more popping the clutch.
