Beware! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/11/2011. Trim: 2009 Audi R8 Coupe quattro with R tronic, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Awesome when it is running. R-tronic can be a little embarrassing when it lags
Cons: Reliability. No track days, but have had it out of commission 8 weeks in first year.Several parts were missing or incorrectly installed. Transmission power seal fautly stopped it in its tracks, towed to dealer. Back 9 days later Engine blew (not my fault) - Took 7 weeks to fix correctly. New Engine shipped with overtorqued oil pan (this is the best they have?) The "certified" dealer and R8 tech made several mistakes which caused oil leaks. Rear noise took 6 trips to dealer to finally fix. Dealer dented some trim pieces. Audi was a nightmare to deal with.
Overall review: Awesome machine but some serious quality and custer experiance issues.
