Looking at R8 V8's second hand as I cant afford a new one or a V10 (they are over twice the price in Aus vs UK).

I want a manual but they are very scarce and hard to match other specs , kms etc with my price range.

what are the autos like to drive in a spirited manner given they are single clutch autos? do they lose much against the manuals? will i be disappointedand wish I had been more patient andjust sweated till the manual came up?

do they have inherent service issues with the auto box & all that power?

has anyone owned both that can give me an opinion
