Auto or Manual

Is an auto worth more or less than a manual ?

I know the list price for the auto is higher but on the seconhand market do the Alfisti prefer a manual ?

I'm thinking of getting an auto but concerned about the re sale value

Also does anyone have any real world experience of mpg for the 1.9 jtdm ?

Autos are generally more expensive than manuals in virtually all cars due to rarity, technology, higher original car price and if someone wants one they will pay for it, so i wouldnt worry about the resale value imo. But it depends on whether you want a 159 or a brera/spider. In the case of the 159 there are alot more autos , whereas with brera/spider they are so rare that you have to pay a premium of at least 1-1.5k for it.

Good luck, the autos are very nice.

Our manual 1.9 gives back about 40-42 mpg mixed driving (75% motor/highway). A friend has an auto 1.9: Motorway about 40, town 20-25
