So I'm in the market to replace my mk5 GTI and I thought my heart was set on a 6 speed B8 A4 I found last week. I was also starting to look at other options and the G8 GT caught my eye. For nearly the same money I can get a GT and performance wise be ahead, but on the other hand I dont know if I can deal with GM plastics and an auto. I've read the auto is great, but still nothing like clutching in. So if anyone can give me some experiences and general thoughts, I'd appreciate it. BTW the A4 is a 2012, which should be towards the end of the oil consumption issue iirc.
