Re: Winter tyres to Summer tyres

HPsauce, would you be willing to refer your mobile tyre fitter assuming location is in the South East?

Thanks.

Re: R8 V10 Plus (Manual) vs Gallardo LP550-2 (Manual)

From a rarity and value perspective, the manual transmission cars are more desirable. Having said that, for the privilege of aforementioned extension, maintenance costs multiply which can put off any future buyers. For instance, the cost to service a Lambo is in the thousands as opposed to hundreds ...

R8 V10 Plus (Manual) vs Gallardo LP550-2 (Manual)

Fully expecting a biased view on this forum, I wanted to get perspectives on how the very rare MY14 R8 V10 Plus (in Manual) would compare with the even more rare MY11 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 (also in Manual). Same power between the 2 cars although the Lambo channels it all to the rear wheels. S...

Re: R8 exclusive seats/panels, BC forged 21", steeringwheel, mirrors, rs6 front bumper

On the seats: from where/which car have they been taken?

How much wear/tear is there?

Presumably no difference between RHD and LHD configurations?

Audi UK MY 2014/15 R8 brochure

Does anyone have an electronic copy of the R8 brochure from 2014/15, ideally from Audi UK?

Re: Jack Barclay Audi vs MRC Tuning

Thanks for the perspective.

Having visited JB Audi, I'm not filled with huge confidence although definitely better than WL Audi.

Having said that, WL Audi is a very low bar!

Jack Barclay Audi vs MRC Tuning

Hi, I wanted to check whether any R8 V10 (Plus) owners had experience of both Jack Barclay Audi in Wimbledon and MRC Tuning in Banbury. I've never used Jack Barclay Audi before but understand they are highly experienced Audi master techs with specific expertise in RS/R8 models. I have experienced MR...

Re: RS5 rotors

Not a straight swap unfortunately.

You will need spigots, hub-centric spacers and depending on the tyres you choose, arch lining clips removed.

Re: Over run / crackle option

Yes, that is my understanding of MRCs amended re-map.

The noise/performance comes at the expense of fried cats I believe.

Has anyone had the remap done with cats in place? Or is it better to go down the route of decatted downpipes before remapping?

Re: Over run / crackle option

Picking up on a related question, I wanted to check whether anyone has the overrun/crackle map tweak with main cats in place? I got a Stage 2 re-map, pre-cats gutted and centre res delete 2.5 years ago. I'm now considering a map tweak to include the flat shift, launch control and overrun/crackle. I ...

Re: PPF vs Ceramic Coat vs Wrap

Thanks MrHilario and MikeFish.

MikeFish: I suppose your reason for PPF as top choice is it is not just colour protect but physical protection of the bodywork?

What is the typical cost of a ceramic treatment?

I know full PPF coverage can be £3-4K.

PPF vs Ceramic Coat vs Wrap

Thinking about protecting paintwork beyond a detailing effort, how would people choose between: 1. PPF 2. Ceramic Coat 3. Wrap Recognising that the last of these isn't intended to protect the paint necessarily but rather, to potentially change the colour temporarily, are there clear preferences from...

TVR Cerbera

Any current/former Cerbera owners care to describe their comparative experience with the RS4? It seems to have sheer drama that the RS4 can never quite have but of course, it is also nowhere near as reliable as the RS4. Both cars not far off in value and upkeep costs so could be considered potential...
