    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    I remember seeing that car on (I thinik) Pistonheads and thinking that it looked surprisingly great.  Congrats!

    Congrats on the R8, any thoughts of black wheels?

     

    No such thoughts Smiley

     

    I think the car may have the high gloss wheel finish option. Perhaps those with more knowledge of the R8 options can confirm this from this pic? There's no point in me asking my salesman friend - he's clueless on spec's Smiley

    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    ISUK, that looks like the standard R8 wheel. These salesmen, you'd think they would be passionate about what they are selling. I don't even an own a R8 nor am I looking at getting one soon and I know every detail and option there is for the car.

    First, many congrats! R8 4.2 FSI manual is excellent car, welcome to the club!Smiley

    Second, this is standard R8 19" Double spoke wheel, polished ones are REALLY polished and not my cup of tea...

    Enjoy your R8, it is very unique in that Java Green(almost sure with my NSU contact that you own the ONLY one).

    Very true - it never ceases to amaze me how salesmen often don't know as much about the product they are selling as one would expect. Smiley And their livelihood depends on it Smiley

    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    Thanks for the replies Mike and Kreso. I've never really looked at the R8 before and the e brochure I have doesn't have a clear pic of the ploished option. I knew this was the only R8 in the UK in this colour but if it's the only one in existence then that makes it more unique Mind you, I'll probably be paranoid now knowing that fact as I'll begin to think I'll never find a buyer when I come to sell it on

    Exactly! You go into a dealer and ask about some basic options or even HP or torque numbers and they just shrug.Smiley I find that a lot even in electronics stores when asking about TV's or stereo equipment. Thank God for the Internet!

    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    The only green I've liked previously is British Racing Green, but this shade is simply  stunning..

    If it's the only one in existence, even in the UK, better be careful with scratches, minor body damage etc.  You may find matching it difficult..

    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    It's not a three layer pearlescent John so it should be ok if any paintwork is needed though hopefully it won't. I know a very good bodyshop in Derby which I'd have no hesitation in trusting. I'll be getting the front end covered with 3M protective film to prevent stonechips.


    Re: Bought the Kermit R8

    Very wise...you seem to have it well covered..
