Note to self, avoid hill.... stay on flat surface only when driving the R8hi, my R tronic has hill hold and it's not really that great an option. dont let the lack of the option put you off a car. what the brochure and the manual does not tell you is that the hill hold only works once per stop. it does not hold you for a second time once you take the foot off the brake until the wheels have rotated forwards again. takes a bit of getting used to!
