R8V8

Post by SimonG » Wed Nov 28, 2018 2:29 am

Evening , for those that might have read my post in RS6 forum, - it was written off in a head on with a DD.
Anyway I’m thinking rather than replace to get a V8 and a XC90.
A V8 will be around 10 years old and used sparingly. Peoples views on such an old car. Issues to be aware of.
Who does a carbon clean around Surrey ?
Price wise will be around £40k, def manual as standard as poss.
I’ve been lucky enough to have a v10 R8 and whilst brilliant won’t spend the £50k ish .
Any views welcome
Thanks
