Does anyone know if Audi plan to fit S-tronic (DSG) on the R8 any time soon?

Have any of our resident R8 owners  driven one  yet?

They just need to freshen up the exterior now. Give it a year ...

Guys this has been done now, I've just come back from the R8 PI launch and the car has had several revisions, including new suspension set up, more power and in the case of the V10 Plus less weight, the new gearbox is 100 times better than the R-Tronic (not hard though really). The rear indicators are also really trick and the new LED headlights at the front also freshen it up, I'll try and upload some images for you
