    Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    Was calling the Audi Dealer yesterday and told him I want to testdrive the R8 as after seeing more and more of this cars, I really start liking the shape.

    First he told me, "if you order today, the delivery we confirm is 3rd quarter of 2010" - what, 3 years delivery time?

    Second, the dealers are not allowed to register their show-room cars. They have to have always one car in the room, cant sell them before they got the next car. For testdrives, their are 12 - in words twelve!!! cars available for whole germany (kind of rediculous, isnt it).

    He will now check availability and come back to me with suggestions.

    Anyway - they are trying hard to produce a very rare luxury object, dont they?

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    In the UK, there is only one test drive car available.

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    Dimitri,
    I have a feeling that Audi is playing not-very-nice game with R8. On my market waiting period is around 12 months and in middle east as you already said waiting period is 1 hour... Even if you order one in middle east waiting is not that long...

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    In italy no problem.....6 months...

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    Today I had a test drive in an R8,guys the interior is far better than the 911 and the engine note is astonishing, but after speccing one up to Pounds96,000 I asked myself is it worth it for an Audi or should I just wait for my facelift in march 08, again the wait will be 15months Dec 2008

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    In switzerland i have no idea but i will let you know guys next week, after my test drive.

    You know guys is so annoying to wait for our cars so long that i've stopped doing it. Just wait for the first used one to hit the market, and here in switzerland they do it unbelievebly fast, and then i take mine straight away. 2010? At that time R8 will be an old car..

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    @ Silvershadow, you are absolutly right with this. I just checked Mobile.de our biggest german car selling platform. And ohhh wounder, there are plenty of R8 with immediat delivery available. If I check prices, there are couple of cars with 10 to 100 km milage (so - they are new, just have a previous registration) for almost the official price. I didnt calculate it on the configurator, but it seems that this cars are even a little bit under the new-car price.

    So - not the hype Audi is thinking about.

    And as you said - in 2010, this car is old and the next 911 is standing in front of the doors (should be in 2011) :-)

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    Yes Lars997, you got immediately what i meant.
    I will get my testdrive over one of these 10-100 km cars. much easier, much faster

    Re: Tryed to get the R8 for Testdrive

    Interesting. Audi Istanbul has a car ready for delievery and said that they will have a quote around 4-7 for this year. But the grey market galleries have 5 cars already to sell immediatley but price is about %10 above Audi Dealer price.

    I think nobody wants to wait Audi Dealar quota , and they will jump to grey market ones or any other alternatives
