With all the negative feedback from the R-Tronic, surely there must be a market to replace it with the newer S-Tronic?
I just wonder how difficult and how expensive this might be, bearing in mind that the engines haven't changed much, if at all.
I appreciate all responses.
I owned an Aston Vanquish S. Brilliant car, when it worked, not so when it was getting fixed mechanically (which was too often in the end). Brilliant as it was it had an atrocious automated manual system (why couldn't they have just made it with a plain old automatic? Surely if Mercedes AMG could do it, they could have too?)
Here's a photo of the Vanquish S when I first tested it:
After another unscheduled problem I was so upset that I sold the Vanquish and got a manual Acura NSX. This was great until I hurt my knee and realized I wouldn't be able to drive a manual comfortably again. So, I am now finalizing a deal for the 2012 R8 V10 in Sepang Blue with the Red nappa leather interior.
Here's a couple of photos of the R8 at the dealer
But, I was thinking aloud to myself, what if we could retro-fit the new S-Tronic into the older R-Tronic cars...
