    What kind of Pork?

    I swapped from a 996 4s to a 997 turbo but looked at a V8 R8 & there really was no contest for the money.

    I'm an Audi man through & through, but I felt the R8 was a bit "all mouth & no trousers" if you get my drift.

    I'm sure the V10 should live up to expectations, but price wise they were still out of reach for me.

    A good question is why are the second hand residuals miles apart for these two?

    You mean residuals between the two R8's?
    Or between the R8 & Pork?

    I cant say I've noticed that. Since looking a couple of years ago, as far as I've noticed they have slowly depreciated at around the same rate.
    I notice that the V10 R8's seem to be holding their value a bit more though.
