    2013 s tronic

    Looking to buy a V10 2013 S-tronic soon. Anything i need to look out for on these?

    I'm picking the s-tronic because i've heard the r-tronic clutch is rubbish.

    Nothing to look out for but do not discount the r-tronic pre-facelift cars. The Rtronic is far from rubbish. Excellent, well built and engaging transmission when used properly.

    Not disregarding it as I have tested one. But my budget permits me to get a S-tronic and they are far superior. I didn't like the way the R-Tronic felt when driving fast. It was really clunky and threw the whole car back when changing gears. Also when in slow it took a second to engage.

    Get the car that will make you happy for sure. But, one test drive in the Rtronic is why some complain about it. Imagine the first time driving a manual, it is usually a disaster. But, once you get the hang of it, it makes sense. The Rtronic is like that. When I first drove an Rtronic I thought it was broken. Once I figured it out, I fell in love. So much that my second R8 was a manual and I went back to the Rtronic.

    But, if the s-tronic is your thing, go for it. It is a very solid unit.

    As a side note, I tried the s-tronic in between my manual and latest rtronic and it is super smooth. Just too smooth for a supercar for me
