    R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    Just got an email from my Sales guy regarding the LED lights.

    The AUDI U.S. Rep indicated that the LED lights will be available for the U.S. customers when the V10 R8 arrives in the U.S. .

    Notice any difference on this pic Ron?


    There will be not headlights washers with LED's...

    I actually don't like the head light washers but I won't be able to get the LED any way .

    Re: R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    And I really hope that US price for R8 will be at the right level...

    If it will be close to 997 turbo, then no question for me-997 turbo-manual with optional LSD!

    Exactly. If the price is more than 120k then forget it.

    Re: R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    If I'm not mistaken, the reason why there won't be any headlight washer for the LED headlights is because the LED headlights get really hot and that is also why the headlight housings will need ventilation (as seen in Toyota's hybrid sports car concept). What I still don't understand is why the LED can get really hot as LEDs are not supposed to generate heat (cold cathode)...anyone can fill me in?

    Re: R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    Both look fine - wouldn't bother me if I had to option an R8.

    You change all your headlights anyway...

    I would take the R8 over the 997 turbo. The R8 looks great IMO

    Re: R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    aesthetically the xenon looks better in the pics IMHO..

    Re: R8 LED Vs. Xenon

    So, there are actually admitting that there will be a V10 ?

    Interesting! Please Mike, tell me what bulbs you will install and how it works, I could do it at my Z3 Coupé as well. Just changed the bulbs there too (I admit ) but I'm still not too satisfied with the light.
