I don't think I'd ever want a fluid clutch auto. Too unreliable and they have an awful effect on fuel consumption. The new 'DSG'-style automated-manual dual clutch gearboxes seem to be great though - the best of both worlds, I think they all have the option to work as a sequential manual and due to the incredibly fast changes, they're actually more economical than a 'normal' manual in most cases!
