After leasing a Polo GTI and owning an RS3, no more VAG for me!
But, I'm not you and you seems to have no problems with owning VAGs so in that matter, I would go with most of the members here an stay with the R8.
I fly twice a year to Germany to drive on cars that I can't own. I rented a GTR, Huracan, 488 spider, fType R, R8 V10+, AMG GTc and a gtc4lusso. For me, the R8 and the fType were the most rewarding on public roads (I assume that on track, the Ferrari will win).

Good luck with whatever you'll pick.

Keep the R8. Its one of the best "daily-able" super/performance cars out there and V10's are a dying breed and one of the great things that you can't get anywhere else other than Lambo's or older used performance cars. If your looking for something bigger/more practical, how about a 911?

I've owned many BMWs. Lost me when Bangel was the designer. Fugly cars. The recent cars are MUCH nicer and I really like the direction. Especially the M2 and F90 M5. Had a 2000 Imola Red M5 and sold it a few years back. Needed 2 new Catalytic Converters which would have cost 6-8k to replace with OEM. But I regret selling it but needed $$ to pay sons tuition.

Keep the R8 and get the warranty unless you need more room. In that case, I would vote the newest year RS5 that would be financially feasible

Manual M2C would be much for fun than R8 automatic.

I would keep the R8 if the M2C is also auto but if the M2C is manual, I would have to seriously think about the move.

I'm #3 on the wait list. That is the option I would consider. I agree with the R8 over the TTRS because both are Auto. I miss driving a manual. Had a 2009 911 4s as a 6 Speed. I traded that for a 2012 V10 R-tronic which I test drive 3 times (that should have been a red flag to NOT buy)and convinced myself to get even though I didn't really like the R-tronic. Car was gorgeous in black with Carbon side blades. Got rid of it and got my current 2015 V10+ S-tronic in Daytona Grey and carbon blades which is a great car. Just miss driving a manual and being able to drive without all the stares/parking worries/etc. Test drive the M2 C in 6 speed and that was a fun ride-thinking the CS will be better? Anyway, that's what I'm struggling with now.

CS will be nice because you know you won't see many others. Probably much like the R8, but will likely Garner very little attention. Most probably wouldn't know the difference between the C and the CS. Should be a hoot of a car to rip around in that's actually quite practical if used as a primary vehicle.

keep the R8 and purchase a daily- an older TT-RS or pre-LCI M2.

As someone who loves to cross-shop wildly different vehicles (I traded a Fiat Abarth in on the M2C and currently have deposits on a Taycan, Cybertruck and 2020 Corvette), I say, screw the TTRS. If you want a more useable fun car, go with the M2CS or a 911 variant. If youre not one to get hung up on the relative poshness or brand obsession, Id also throw a GT350 or GT500 in the mix.

I was sold on the M2C based on useability, trackability and aftermarket support.

Oil consumption, Oil consumption and, again, oil consumption. On my polo GTI, first tank was empty at 2500 KMs. Second at 5500 KMs and third at 7500 KMs. Should I proceed?
In my RS3, which I have owned for 8 months, 3 times full tank of oil had been filled up. The RS3 had a 255/18/30 tires on the front to try and avoid the under-steer as much a s possible. This 30 tire height was a disaster, Three pot holes with three immediate flat tires.

The Urus is the car equivalent of getting a stripper as a girlfriend. I mean, it would be awesome... but you really gotta know what you're getting yourself into.

Hmm.. tough question. Personally don't care for the gen 1 R8 styling but you really can't beat that V10. And the way cars are going, I think it's going to be better to hold onto stuff like this for as long as possible. If you can swing it, why not keep it and try to find a preowned M2 comp in manual. That would be a pretty wicked pair.

I felt the same way. Seems almost too good to be true. These are the rates Neil Brenner quoted me ( I hope he doesn't mind me putting it here)
These are all Fidelity Platinum (top off the line) coverage. These are with a $250.00 deductible. The time and mileage start now and are additive. 3yrs/36000 miles $2235.00, 4yrs/48000 miles $2807.00, 5yrs/60000 miles $3213.00, 6yrs/60000 miles $3479.00 and 7yrs/70000 miles $3929.00.
Pretty affordable. Anyone have any problems getting claims through fidelity? With the V10+ I'm really only concerned with a big engine failure or tranny issue. No Mag. shocks to worry about and A/C is $$ but not like in the V8.
