Ebony & Ivory













I'm sure we nearly caused a few accidents as we distracted passing traffic!  
Moonwalker

Nigels new motor no doubt!? And soon DK gets his, when is he picking his up anyway? Three R8s on the forum, how did the V10 compare Dave?
Nudenut

Can't go anywhere nowadays without bumping into another blooming' R8!!

You sly dog you DK, went out to buy a 10k A8, comes home with an R8. Love it.

Nudenut

All your fault Dave!!

And can't see it ending just yet... loving the de-badged look!!

Nige - not sure what to say but... FECKIN AMAZING....
hiltoa

Nice one Nige - my kind of number-plate too!
Graham

Looks great Nigel. What plans do you have on the tuning front?
Nudenut

Thanks guys for all the positive comments!

Tuning/Modding wise it will be going up to MRC real soon for mapping/ITG Filters, it has a Milltek Race exhaust on it which is now growing on me, (if not the neighbours! ), MTM 20" Forged wheels and Mov'it are sorting out the mounting kits for the Ceramics. I have the CF mirror housings and GT rear lights at home waiting to go on too!

Then later down the line QST may likely persuade me to allow Jason Heffners Twin Turbo kit to be installed

Guys, how can I say this and theres only one way I can say this! I have been converted, and I want one.... Nige took me out in his new p&j the other night and I have to say I have never heard anything so perfect in all my life... what a noise that car, piece of perfection makes. Its like this, I love my AMG and thought that was loud!... I love my car but have fallen in love with Nige's LOL. As for your new baby DK, good man that looks another wet dream, love em! R8's all the way!
Mark

Very Very nice Nige. Is it a manual or R-tronic?

Can't wait to hear the exhaust!

Thanks Mark, it's R-Tronic and as said LOUD but as the engine is behind you so no exhaust run in front/under you it's still quiet in the cabin!
Mark

The exhaust note on the V10 I had was the only let down to the car. It needed / wanted the Lambo noise.

Really looking forward to seeing it. A quick blat would be much appreciated

How hell did I miss this thread!?
Wow, loving the R8 collection. No way I'm ANYWHERE near that league, got to pimp our the wife's "services" for a good few more years yet!  

Black or white, now that's a very tough decision.

It will fail now I think but with the Capristo Zorst valves shut will be quieter than OEM

Most UK tracks are 105 drive by, static, dependent on location is anywhere between 95-98dba.

Thruxton (iirc) is 89dba

Nice cars! Congratulations!
T2 FOO

Is it wrong to confess that I have bought and sold an R8 V10, which was supposed to replace my RS6, and thought better of it?

It might make you all think I'm a huge wuss.

My problem was having a car that I couldn't take both my kids out in.

Which probably hasn't improved things any...
aka_dk

Tone, you numpty!

You've got a Q7 and an A6 for the kids. With the V10 you could have joined the most exclusive club in the country

R8 Club

First rule of R8 Club is ...

Well, I coudlnt say as you don't have one

BUY ONE
Spinner

Lovely cars congrats guys, look forward to seeing them soon
