Wow, there was a lot said. I am also in the camp of owning both. The R8 is a great car and has a lot of pluses. I really like the look and the fact that it is more of a sleeper car without that special feel. I buy a car to enjoy and not to show off. I drive my cars and enjoy them on the street as well as the track. As the next gen comes out the V8's will become more affordable priced, thus I will pull the trigger. I am also a fan of BMW M5's and always have at least one in my garage. Each to his own, but the NSX will always be mine favorite car. Why can we not enjoy a few cars at the same time? We don't need to replace the NSX.
