    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    The R8 looks fine from stock, no need for stripes at all, doesn´t look good on this car. V10 is a master piece, looking forward to follow your ownership experience with it Smiley

    the only stripes that i find cool (except ofcourse when they are part of the heritage) are rookie stripes

    Great news about the stripes RC kiss. It would have been too much tribute to the 911R with them indecision

    Are you serious? Two yellow stripes on the back, indicating that you're a...rookie? Smiley Smiley

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    What's about removing the stripes only at the back of the car?
    Then the worst part is gone and you can also keep the clear protection foil in front.

    If that looks not good at all, you can still remove the remaining stripes at the front.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Just remove the stripes. If you feel the car needs more black after that you could experiment in Photoshop with patches of black film on different parts of the car until you find something you like that is less boy racer.


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Just sell the car and get an R. You will be tired of the R8 in 6 months anyway. It will save you all the future excuses smiley

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    You are right, I didnt followed whole story. Since I always thought RC is in early 40s, picking R8 was kinda okay. But if he is close to 50s, RS6 seems much more logical choice from my perspective.

    Seeing 50yr old ppl driving cars like R8/488/Hurracan seemed always funny to me (almost childish). On other hand its very nice to see older ppl in suits driving cars like Aston Martin. It goes with their age, but also shows they have sense for high-performance machines Smiley If older guy is not so business oriented, car like RS6 is amazingly balanced choice IMO.

    It is a different color, you need to see it live...this is not your typical military green/brown whatever. Looks very nice.

    No R for me...manual...remember? Also no rear seats, so why bother? I still have the GTS Cab and surprisingly (i have the car over a year now), I do not get tired of it. Smiley In my opinion the best cab on the market (if you exclude the various Spider/Spyder versions of certain super sports cars) and a very good daily driver in C4 flavor.

    I will certainly regret not getting the R from a financial point of view (looking at the current demand...) but me and everybody else know that if I would have gotten the R, I would have never sold it, so... Smiley

    Super Darius:

    Congrats RC,i lost this discussion.

    i like the R8 more than the old one...but..but...remember you are a Porsche guy.

    indecision

    I still am, Dario. The GTS stays. Wonderful car. Smiley

    The R8 just pushed all the right buttons in my emotional department, one reason I leased it for four years instead of three. Also in the hope that maybe in four years, Porsche will come up with their own R8 competitor. Smiley

    The 991.2 Turbo S is a very fast car (probably not really any bit slower than the R8 in real life) but since Porsche hasn't changed anything in the emotional part (exhaust/engine sound), even "ruined" a bit the very direct steering feel of the 991.1 version Smiley and the interior was still looking the same, there was no point in getting the 991.2 Turbo S.

    991.2 GT3 or GT3 RS? I get to the track so seldom (maybe once or twice a year), a car like the R8 makes much more sense, considering the guys I am usually having fun with (Carrera GT, 918, Aventador, 458, F12, etc.). Also, the R8 feels like a glove, which is very important for a fun car. I'm not a big fan of mid engined cars but the R8 fits me perfectly, believe it or not. It kind of "supports" my driving style very well. Similar to the 991 Turbo S I had but never really enjoyed because other than on the track and some twisty country roads, the Turbo S was boring like hell.
