    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! :)

    Get him to turn the front lights off then show him the detail, assuming it's there on the production cars he'll be impressed! lovely car!

    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....
