5SpeedThe "autostick" in my wife's Acura TL is essentially useless (and counterintuitive since you pull back for upshifts). You are obviously correct in that you cannot disengage the engine from the driveline to blip the throttle to match revs to roadspeed - which the Ferrari system does automatically, like in their real F1 cars. Simply another marketing tool in my opinion. I haven't read any tests where an autostick application is any faster than simply leaving it in "D". It merely gives the illusion of control.I live near the mountains and I'll take the 5 speed manual in my Prelude over the automatic in any more powerful car for fun driving any day.
