I hope Audi defies the elimination of manual transmissions. Sadly, the only model currently available with a stick is the R8. Even the TT's only come with slushboxes these days.

Auto boxes these days are so good, I honestly don't miss manuals in any car I drive.

+1 Couldn't agree more. Unfortunate fact is most car buyers are not driving enthusiasts. Manufacturers pander to the majority, not to the purists.
