In my experience the manual 128 feels much better/faster off the line than the auto 135, has that instant power and snap only a manual can deliver...on the other hand, the manual 135, now that felt like raw power!
Out of the three...in my opinion, the auto 135 was the least enjoyable to drive...and ironically the most expensive...
