    Re: New options for R8...

    If I was ever forced to buy an Audi, it would be the upcoming RS6

    Re: New options for R8...

    I cannot like this car for the life of me. I've seen one up close but it doesn't stir anything for me.

    Re: New options for R8...

    Audi haters-this thread is not for you...

    I bet that all of you are dreaming about Ricer Heaven-new Nissan GT-R...

    Re: New options for R8...

    I don't think anyone can hate the R8... but some are not yet convinced with it... I felt in love with the car back in 2003 in Frankfurt when I was invited to see the prototype before the official launch... still, 4 years later I ordered a 430 scuderia instead of the R8... and I was realllllllly tempted to have one of the first R8... Don't get me wrong, I know it's a really great car, but somehow to me the novelty of the R8 weares off pretty fast... same happened to me with the A5... and I still own an A4 so I don't hate Audi at all...

    Re: New options for R8...

    You're killing me Kreso!

    Me + GT-R = no love
    Me + R8 = some love
    Me + F430 = much love
    Me + GT3 = a lot of love

    No no,I want R8

    Re: New options for R8...

    is the matt black an actual color option
    in Europe? It isn't in the States at least not yet.

    Matte is extremely difficult to apply to a production line car . You only get one chance - i.e., you can't polish out an imperfection in the spray booth !

    Re: New options for R8...

    Outside - stunning, inside - way to much Audi Standard (looks like an A3)

    Re: New options for R8...

    Ceramics for R8 will be available from Februar 2008.
    Few pics...

    Excellent choice

    Re: New options for R8...

    Andrea,

    Ceramic Brakes on R8 are from SGL. Fronts are the same as on 997 Turbo, rears are even little bit bigger(356mm). Why Ceramics? Few reasons:
    -constant pedal feel and brake power
    -no brake dust
    -weight, R8 Ceramics are over 15kgs lighter then standard Iron brakes

    I agree with you that there are few issue with Ceramics as well:
    -not as fast reaction on brake pedal on wet road. Iron brakes do not have that problem
    -Ceramics are more fragile as well

    BUT, IMHO for truly fast car(and R8 is true sportscar) Ceramics are a must. Of course if money is not an issue...

    I know from personal experience that standard R8 brakes are great. My contact at Quattro Gmbh told me that R8 Ceramics are amazing.

    Kreso,

    I thought you were also opting for the 19' Titanium wheels and that they were causing some delay ?

    Re: New options for R8...

    Yes, I wanted them too but, Ceramics are confirmed for Februar 2008. Titanium 19" are not. So, I decided to skip them.

    BTW, maybe I will get R8 very soon... More news next week...

    Re: New options for R8...

    I came back to edite my post but I see you already replied.

    I realised you did not mentioned the Magnetic ride: not sporty enough ? They did perform well lastly on the Ring (7.58 on the SA Supertest)...

    Re: New options for R8...

    Of course with Magnetic Ride. It is essential option for R8 IMHO. It works so much better then PASM on 997 Turbo for example...
