I have been asked to start a poll on the R8's DIS ... which is an area of much debate on its suitability ... and or appropriateness for ... the R8 ... so ...

What are your thoughts on the R8's ... driver information system (DIS) ... :confused:

You can vote for more than one option in this poll.

You can vote for more than one option in this poll.
So I have voted for the ...
"... should have been standard ... " ... and ...
"Not good enough ..." ... options.

I would have thought that most people voting for the fourth option in the poll ... would also be voting for the fifth option ... but it seems I'm the first to do so out of three people.

I can't see an easy way to enable you to select a second option ... maybe it's worth sending a PM to Ekool ... he might be able to edit the poll and enable you to vote again.

Sorry ... tried all I can think of ... but I think you'll have to send a message to ekool to see if he can do something ... to let you select the last option in the poll as well.

I think it is interesting that 30,000.00 dollars Ford models have multicolor and even H.U.D. and this car that should be as best rounded statement from Audi's cutting edge tech gets the Space Invaders version of DIS.

Indeed, it doesn't make sense. At least Audi should have made it an option.

Thank you!! My thoughts exactly. Audi just seems to drop the ball when it comes to the smaller, finer details.... Very annoying.

I fail to see what the issue is here!... though I don't have my R8 yet

The DIS tells you very little of importance, and the monochrome display suits the "driving machine" character of the car. You could call it retro, but I'd call it simple and clear.

Porsche have the best instruments - a large central rev counter gives you 90% of the information you need to drive a car like the R8. 9% is the speed, and 1% is for everything else when it breaches limits (too hot, too low on fuel etc).

Or do people want a gimmick like the Reventon's display? :)

Agree, Audi should have a color display, instead of several years old monocrome.
Monocrome looks Cheap and very dated. Should be the same or better than display on my S8 - 2008. Especially on an '09 R8.
