So as of today our plan looks like this:
We are going to keep our two cars (manual ones) and once I have my license, we will buy a car with automatic for me. A used one, not new. Not too old, but also not almost brand new, you get the point. It should have some features, not too many kilometres and a few other things. As automatic cars in Germany are not the norm, the prices are higher and you get less cars. But we have already looked, and there are some who are possible.
So the decision to go on with automatic is 99% made.
Next lesson hopefully tomorrow, we weren't able to call my instructor yet.
