    Got a tick under 16k on mine and it is a 2011. No problems so far. I have seen a few LP 560s with over 50k miles on the same clutch and no issues and I would think the R8 is a lot better than that car.

    Re: Highest mileage V10 R8?

    I live in NorCal. I'm at 26200 miles after 15 months of ownership. I got PS3s at 11k miles and RE-11s at 24k miles. I like the RE-11s better.

    The car is my daily driver, I commute to work in it and do 70-90 miles a day depending which route I take. Lots of weekend trips too.

    I had the shifter and linkage replaced around 15k miles since it had gotten loose. I'm a big guy and I guess I shift hard.

    I also had the slave cylinder for the clutch fail three weeks ago when I went to leave the office one night. Clutch pedal sunk straight to the floor, so I was stranded. Had to call R8 roadside service, it worked pretty well. They are very attentive and call to check in on you to make sure the flatbed showed up, etc. Took it to my dealer; it was a part defect and not wear, so Audi paid for the labor to pull the tranny and the parts to replace the cylinder. While the tranny was out, I also replaced the clutch just because it was convenient. It sounded like it was half worn when they replaced it.

    I have the Stasis chip and exhaust, haven't had any ECU troubles. Car pulled much harder after the chip/exhaust, to the point where I have to modulate the throttle now when going full throttle in second gear. It's fast as balls. At some point, going to look at forced induction but I'm happy for now.

    No rattles or anything like that. Sometimes the bottom 3-4" of my windshield will fog up if the temp is low and the humidity is high. Apparently it's due to the radiators in the front of the car. I just crack the window or turn on defrost and it's fine.

    Edit: It's a 2012 V10.
