    Magnet ride suspension?

    Bell Classics in St Albans refurb the things too. I called them to check. £460 per corner. A bit more if they take them off the car but they'll need it for a week. Other way is to get them taken off and then post.

    Question re mapping

    Evening all I'm wondering a bit about whether to have my R8's mapped. If anyone has had it done, what's the attitude of Audi (in the UK) to support and servicing afterwards? Will they carry on as normal or do they tell you to never darken their door again? Or something inbetween? Many thanks...

    Aftermarket R8 exhausts

    207/8 R8?

    Go for a manual. The auto wasn't very good back then. Jerky and expensive if it goes wrong. And manual is the right thing to do anyway! Cheers BobG

    Throwing an R8 round Rockingham...

    I did an 150 quid day at that track near Loughborough courtesy of my son. Nice - but not much cop tbh. Just a few laps pootling round with an instructor in the passenger seat saying 'Back off' and 'Brake now' all the time. No teaching involved at all and no high speed either. So don't go for the...

    Hi After a lifetime of loving Alfa's, I've bought a big boys car. And boy oh boy! It's a big step up even from the 'fun car' 350Z I used as my occasional speed fix. I don't understand all the controls yet never mind how to drive the thing properly, but I think learning is going to be good fun...
