            To be fair, the only thing i really dislike is the rear bumper.

            I could live with the front, but ideally i would have prefered the top of the bumper under the grille colour coded as well. If i was to buy one, i would probably just get it colour coded myself and change the wheels.

                I have the brochure in front of me for the pre facelift R8 and GTS, the main difference is that the GTS has the Magnetic Ride Control and 20" rims as standard, interstingly the R8 spec is only a 4 way electric control for the drivers seat, the GTS has driver/pass 8 way electric seats

                And did you know the wheels and other 'key' parts are treated with HSVDNA, ie datadots to id bits if they are stolen.

                      These cars need nostrils on the bonnet. I'll have it in Estate form please.

                      As to the speedo, it could easily have an MPH function in the centre.

                      Is the Comp Mode down to active suspension? Are the yellow calipers just a styling cue, or are they ceramics?

                        Comp mode loosens the TC/Stability control, allows you more angle basically before it kicks in, it could well tie into the suspension settings as well, but not sure about that bit.

                        I love the new bonnet, hate the front and rear bumpers

                        Thats exactly the kind of bonnet mods I was planning on mine
