    Do you manually change gears with your auto transmission?

    A lot of us on here have auto transmission and also can manually change up/down but I rarely find a use for it, or is this just me? Maybe some boy-racers use it to hold on to the lowest gear until the revs reach their limit which could have a use for rapid overtaking maybe.
