Great pics. I am strongly considering a V10 R8 in the future--how'd you like it? Is it do-able as a daily driver? Would you recommend the auto over the manual? I hear the auto was kinda crap.

Did the shop install a clear bra either before the wrap or on top of the wrap? I went and got a quote yesterday and they said that's the best way to do it. It also doubles the price of install so naturally I'm a little skeptical.

R tronic is sub par. S tronic is much better.

Manual gated is classic look and feel but not as fast. Very few built with manuals.

I loved the R8 for the attention it got but I find that the GTR is more fun to drive and actually find it faster than the v10 before I got mods done. I actually daily drove the r8 and used it to get to my client as well. I put about 25000 km on it in one year and it was so easy to drive around. I daily drove it cause I spit with the X and she took my daily which was a Prius lol. As for manual I never drove one so I can't compare it.

I switched to the GTR also because I needed the back seats for when I needed to pick up my daughter and still wanted a car in the "super car" class and also to have something you wouldn't see to often on the road.

Naw they didn't ... Never even occurred to me you could do it. I don't see how a clear bra would really help with a wrap. I think it's just a wast of money if you were to do it.

Thanks! So, you S Tronic? Or R Tronic? What year was yours?
