    Had to say something, a friend just popped round to our office in his new R8! We spent the last few months discussing this day and when it was due, and now it has arrived!! :)

    I spent what seemed to be a good hour waiting for him to arrive, like an excited school child pacing and waiting at the door! :sorry:

    Any way went for a quick drive in it, and truly a great car with amazing sound track!! :hubbahubba:

    I am sure you have all seen one, but I hadn't yet! On TV's 5th gear of course, with Tiff ragging the arse out of it! :)

    Here are a few snaps, thanks Zak for making me his first point of call to show off! :)

    Well just got back from driving the R8, rather than passenger! Getting a lift is one is fun, but driving it oh yeah alot more fun!

    Went for a good half hour drive and then down the pub for some refreshments. And I hate to say I was shaking, no idea why but I was really shaking after. There plenty of pressure on when I drove out of the pub car park, don't stall it or reverse it in to anything!! There are now a few people at that establishment under the wrong impression who owns the car! ;) he he

    So much fun! Rumour has it he thinking of coming to the VAG night at Ace Cafe this month, so see if we get a good turn out of Audi's this month! Or just the 2 of us :(

    Still grinning!

    Is it picky to say I think it would look better without the R8 badge on the back? Destroys the symmetry....
