Buying Help

Post by aerospace100 » Tue Sep 04, 2018 4:43 pm

Hi Guys,

A mate of mine is considering buying a 2014 R8 max budget £75k.

A few things we're quite eager to know:

1) Can this be used as an everyday car doing around 10K miles per year? I.E. Do a lot of you have second cars which you use for the daily commute etc.

2) The car would only come with a 12 month warranty given the age of the car. Is this a big problem? He has never had a car outside of warranty period in many years.

3) How much is servicing?

4) Anything he should be looking out for when buying one second hand?


EDIT: He would consider either V8 or V10 - he's not a petrol head, just loves the look of the R8
