Need advice re: whether to buy a 2006 GrandSport

I'm looking for a second car and was settled on a Porsche 911 until I found that the Maserati GranSport is not the outrageously expensive car that I had assumed it to be. I love the way the 2006 GS looks and I would prefer to have a car that I'm not going to see in every third driveway in my neighborhood, but I have read a couple of posts that make me a little nervous. Specifically, comments about the GS transmission.

Why do people advise against using reverse to the extent possible and against using the "auto" button? And what is it like driving the GS in the city (stop and go)? I read that "stop and go is not your friend". Unfortunately for me, almost all of my driving is in the city.

I appreciate any advice.

buy the car, it will change your life.
I agree. The experience is irreplaceable, from a carload in a BMW with their cell cameras out, to the eight-year-old with his face pressed up against the glass in his mom's car, to the Carl's Jr drive-through-window worker with the first words of english I have ever heard from her: "nice car"!

Plus you feel the craftsmanship just sitting in it, rather than the manufacturing.
