You might want to rephrase that buddy, we here are all very responsible and safety conscious drivers. "Approaching the limit" is only for the track and should not go together in the same sentence with "public roads" Image
I think we're ok mate, I'm talking about Germany. Presumably you are too?
Current 2016 Carmine Cayman GTS, PDK + toys.
Gone 2015 RS5 Cab (Panther, most of the toys - except straigtheners), 2012 Discovery 4 family wagon, 2014 Golf R (Loaded, total sh!te), 2015 Cayman GTS, PDK and stuff, 2014 RS4, Sepang with most of the toys, SQ5, S4 lots of other cars - nothing of interest to be honest.

Welcome back to the fold fella..
Guessing you have had a re knit on the Barnet to move away from the jag?

Interested to know what your thoughts of the plus ( presuming you have had one amongst the 8?) to drive compared to the 4..
Had mine a couple of months and feel the b7!is still the better weekend/ drivers car..😎.. You get out of the b7 with your heart pounding.. Where the v10 even with the larini zorst just doesn't feel and give you the same satisfaction as the B7..

Hope the missus and chav are all good.

Regards jas
R8 gen1 v10 plus white. Larini clubsport valved zorst.carbon side flicks,and fixed carbon spoiler.
Previous..RS4 Sprint blue loon..milltek non-res valved.Revolution carbon air intake kit.cold air feed.carbon clean.MRC stage 2 remap..led interior lights.dectane led rear lights.led drls.Argon carbon oil splitter,race style front splitter,B and C door pillars and engine bottle cover..KW lowering springs.HEL brake lines all round.
