    Not sure if this is a common occurence and apologies for the pic qualities (yes it was a rainy sunday afternoon!) but whilst out and about spotted the following which I thought looked pukka.

    Equipped with Yellow Porsche brakes...

    Disgustingly tacky. Ruined the R8's looks, but probably just another footballer...

    What a catastrophic waste of a great car.

    And what was wrong with the original brakes??

    I actually thought chrome cars were illigal on uk roads ??? Didn`t they have to transport that old Jag, in polished alloy, everywhere on a transporter as it wasn`t allowed on uk roads ????

    might just have my wires crossed which is normal for a sparky lol

    I didn't think they were illegal, just too much of a risk for the insurance companies to insure them, like with that chrome mini

    White gold = rhodium plated yellow gold
    Platinum = platinum
    :icon_thumright:

    Also - chrome cars = tacky and tasteless. The first couple were original but now, no.

    Near Epping mate, I have noticed a number of flash cars parked in the same spot - haven't seen the R8 of late as I drive through the area regularly also down to Repton Park & Gants Hill.
