"This is a great car. Well made. High quality both exterior and interior. It's fast, sounds great and so comfortable inside. I can't reach the passenger door handle when I am seated in the driver's seat. So it's wide with plenty of room in the footbox. And cool inside. So what's not to like about the R8? Well, it's not easy to drive slowly and smooth. The dual clutch transmission is made for really fast shifts when driving aggressively. Slow and smooth are not easy. The transmission is also tricky as there is no park gear until you remove the key (after you shutoff the engine). So, when stopped you are just in neutral. It's easy to forget that and easy to take off when you are still in neutral. So these are all common DCT tranny faults. But the reward is super fast shifts under acceleration. And in sport mode downshifts have auto rev matching... way cool. The brakes are also very touchy. Carbon ceramic will squeak if dirty but not often. But they grab fast! Beware.
I never had a car like this (some Porsches) that when i come out from a store, etc. there's a group of people around my car taking photos. So lot's of attention. I like that some people don't."
