Expert Quotes:

the big picture is right on

a lot of the R8's options are offered a la carte

The Audi navigation system...remains notably superior
Forbes Autos

The Audi R8 has plenty of standard and optional features to enhance the overall driving experience. There are features to enhance the driving experience such as Audi's navigation system, which is easy to program (even for a non-geek) and features scalable views such as those found on the Internet search engine Google. Audi’s MMI controller takes charge of the navigation system and the audio controls, and it’s somewhat easier to operate than BMW’s similar iDrive controller—but both make’s editors long for the days of simple control knobs.

One feature that was especially appreciated at Kelley Blue Book is the metal gate that surrounds the shifter -- making shifting "so much fun, providing a satisfying 'clink' as each shift is completed."

Some optional features for the 2008 Audi R8 are not available individually, frustratingly enough; according to Kelley Blue Book, these must be purchased as part of a "package." In the R8, Audi’s "Convenience Package" offers a rearview camera, hill-holder clutch, Bluetooth wireless capability, and auto-dimming exterior mirrors. There is also a "Leather Package" which includes more extensive leather trim in the cabin, along with a 465-watt, 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. But as points out, some other options like Alcantara (artificial suede) trim can be ordered separately.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
