Mate the R8 is a lovely motor. Had the pleasure of driving a V10 and if I had the money at the time wouldn't have thought twice about buying it.

Not driven the V8 but in guessing it's some what lacking in the performance stakes compared to the V10. That said mate, it's not all about the go and they do sound awesome.

I believe andrew who had a 650r made the swap so I'm sure he will be a long soon to advise. I'm led to believe he really liked the R8 but on the flip side there's Goldie who had a brand new v10 and hated it lol.

Go have a drive fella and see what you think.
