To me that isn't a fail but an unfortunate spec choice by Audi on the car supplied.

No one could possibly deny that the GTR is the knig when it came to value for money, it has shown all comers that they are all over priced for what you get.
ya gotta quit being so sensitive....
ok ok...the R8 is the greatest car ever created....all Audi's put BMW to shame...and Jag's are not for old people...they rarely have mechanical or electrical issues.....extremely reliable and cost of ownership is best of class!....JAG's are SMOKIN!
