    What I mean is.. (M)

    A basic auto trans is a lever sliding past PRND432 notches. You can manually shift a basic auto by moving the lever between the individual gear notches.

    The step is EXACTLY the same thing, except the manual shifting is done in it's own gate and is computer assisted.

    So the "interface" is different. But the transmission and it's actual functionality is identical.
