Damn.. an itch has started... and it begins with a 4!

Damn the Daves and then Nudenut (and others!!) with their stunning R8's..

I've been loving Sarge all year, and he's been absolutely ace, but seeing a few R8s in my rear view mirror recently has really started something.

They are simply stunning, with incredible poise and presence and, from what I have felt and seen, absolutely superb to drive too.

Til now, I'd managed not to look into it... til tonight... NOW I find they are getting really quite reasonable too - how long can I resist now the weather is here too!!?

Whats wrong with this for example - sub 50k! ?!:

Oh heck - perhaps my only salvation is that Sarge would take a while to find the right owner....?

they are not very reliable I will have you know !

LOL
aka_dk

depends on how much money you got Nick ... I would wait 12 months and get a V10

there is a facelift this year

the V10 is night and day powerwise vs. the V8 and has bags more spec
iR8V10

Very plain interior, not got the extended leather, any carbon or even the ally pedals.

It does have B&O, Front & Rear sensors and heated seats which is nice.  

Also says carbon fibre engine bay but why not include pictures if that is the case!?!?

Still good value though!

The state of the drivers seat would do your head in I reckon!

You're not allowed to sell Sarge!  Damn, I wish I had the cash to buy him back aswell as the R8...

... but that's just greedy!  LOL

Funnily enough DK, it was seeing your tale of woe that made me go look!!

Fingers crossed for you mate - sounds a nightmare.

This one was literally the first that popped up and wasnt orange(!) it just surprised me.

It wont happen for me for a few months at least, and 12 months was more in the timeline I had planned - ie to enjoy Sarge, get a few more details sorted ans sell before the miles get too high. He is still ACE.

hmm - V10, I hadnt even dared do THAT search...

Phew - thanks for reminding me Dave, ok, I wont sell - you just saved me a fortune!!

That one's been for sale for a while Nick, memorable to me as they are my dads initials.

Not to come across as a total vulture... much... but please give me a text if you're thinking of it in the future

Keep in touch Alistair - I have half a plan and it might help you if I understand your thinking..

Sarge going in Monday for some minor paint improvements and wheel refurb ready for the summer.
