    According to Audi Vehicle management system there's no data whatsoever on it's mileage. Blackburn Audi sold it and that's it. It left the dealers with 57 miles on it.

    It also has 3 outstanding recalls on it.

    If you can afford an R8 you can afford to service it at Audi.

    I can afford to service my audi at audi, but my mate has a garage so i take it their.
    Private approved garages are far cheaper anyway no matter how much money you have.

    Maybe the owner was/is ill and the last thing on his/her mind was servicing the car.
