1. Left hand
2. Right hand
3. Both hands

I always drive with left hand with any cars, with the IS300 my right always holding on the shift-ball since there aren't an arm-rest. i think that is a nice place to rest your arm if it gets tired.

My Audi TT doesn't have an Armrest either. I don't miss it in the city when changing gears, but on the highway it's sorely missed

Man, I must have been out of town when you scored that TT, Eric. Son of a gun that's a slick ride. How do you like it?

Left hand wheel and right hand on shift knob. I've owned 5spds my whole life so i'm just use to driving that way. This is the 1st auto i've ever bought...

It varies:

Above 100 mph and when driving spiritedly, two hands, nine and three o'clock, just above the spokes.

Normal cruising, left hand, 12 o'clock, right hand on the knob (
) or left hand 9 o'clock and elbow on the door ledge (habit from the Miata).

And due to the lack of armrest, sometimes I hold on to the hand brake instead of the shift knob...

Except at 95mph you use one hand to test the snow mode button

Oh yeah, forgot about that. Between 95 and 100 mph, just one hand.
