Just though I would say Hi

Well new here but look forward to sharing information (if I have any)
Bought this about a month ago and love it - never in my life did I think I could own one of these.
Ran a Audi TT 240 for about three years but sold it and bought a Range Rover Sport, good car but it never inspered me.

Welcome and very nice. I don't normally like R8's but that blue and black combo looks cool.

IMHO the dark blue with the black wheels is the 100% best combo for an R8.

I have half an eye out for a V10+ coupe or a Spyder with an S-tronic and that colour combo for myself - it's sweet!

Thank you all for that, it had silver wheels when I went to see it but looked naff, black was the way to go for me.
