The Jag has better, nimbler steering, especially in tight corners, though you do feel like you're moving a lot of mass around up front. The different engine layouts, and the significantly different visual cues out the windshield, produce very different driving experiences for two cars that are almost identical in length and width. Both are an absolute blast to drive.

I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about LOL. The rims look fantastic on the car, just not in black. Polished honeycomb on a BRG F-Type would be SEX

I'd have to see how that looks. Any pictures or renderings of it?

must be nice to have two cars to choose from in the morning

the R8 V10 is one heck of a machine. I'd imagine the F-Type might get more head turners as its a convertible and the exhaust is LOUD
