Good evening everyone.
I am coming from a new 2013 Audi S5 and probably purchasing tomorrow a 2008 Audi R8 with 22K miles R-tronic. I am getting a fairly good deal as I used to work at the dealer. I have a few last minute questions that will make or break the decision for me so I am hoping you guys can give me your honest opinion. To be honestly I liked the "raw" feeling of the R tronic over the S-tronic as far as auto transmissions go, but it will definitely take some practice to get comfortable in.
1. They are throwing in (at my request) the following:
A. Ipod connection
B. Audi Care Plus Service Plan
C. 3 year 36 month platinum audi warranty
E. Matte Black Wrap
-Is there anything else I must get? I have had them check the tires and brakes and they appear to be in good working order.
2. The quattro hop, as the dealer called it, is horrendous when I make tight turns I assume this is typical for an 08 Audi R8? Is there anyway to get rid of it (probably a dumb question). I drove an 2014 and didnt notice it.
3. I only drive about 5,000 miles a year, is there a particularly "landmark" service or problem I may hit in the next 2-3 years with the car?
