    Tuscan has a slightly orange tint. Pictures don't do it justice. It's just the wear issue

    Mustang Brown was offered in some other Audi models. It looks a bit darker (more brown) than Tuscan.

    You'd be the FOURTH owner of that car. I'd be worried about why those other 3 people felt the need to trade in this car...

    If that doesn't worry you, selling it to a 5th person would definitely hurt when it's time to sell.

    I've always believed tuscan and mustang brown are one and the same - with trademark issues affecting calling it "mustang brown" in some markets. I know when I first looked at the r8, it was mustang brown here in the uk as I was going to have that with daytona grey exterior - but when talking/researching online, the US called it tuscan brown.

    Photos never do anything justice, lighting and different setups can dramatically alter the images.

    Re: How about this one guys?

    This is a 2009 which means its not even a V10. Brand new it was $100K invoice. If it were me I'd tell the dealer to take a $20K walk especially with what the 2012 V10's are selling for. This car on its best day is worth about $75k. Go look at the auctions. Better yet, since EDMUNDS is a public source that reveals TMV, Go ahead and plug in the numbers. But dont say I didnt warn you. Dont take these ridiculous dealer numbers to heart. Heck, even if the car had 5K miles it wouldnt be worth more than $80K due to the newer R8's, the V10's etc. So many factors knock this 2009 down to the mid $70's. Hey, if you want it bad then get it but me personally, I Dont buy into the "OOOOH, its an R8, Must be worth $100K!" Thats a bunch of bs.

    Dont be afraid to tell the dealer he is asking for $20K more than the car is worth. In fact, walking should always be anticipated if you know the market. Otherwise, you will be throwing away $20K. There will always be another car. Good luck

    Re: How about this one guys?

    You may not be accurate saying that because it was a 2009 the cost was $100K invoice. The base 2009 MT R8 with no options was $114K in 2008. My 2009 was $141,550 invoice and nobody was discounting the R8 in late 2008.

    mark_nimba you do not have which R8 you own in your profile. It would be helpful if we knew where you are coming from with your comments. How much of a discount did you negotiate off with your new or used R8?

    I was at St. Paul Audi yesterday. They just sold an R8 GT Spyder with a $20K discount, but the car had sat for eight months. The sticker on this car was $240K.

    Edmunds does not allow you to select any CF option, which was $8400 in my case.

    Re: How about this one guys?

    Um, yeah so I don't think I'm going to be getting any 2009 R8's for 75 grand. I'd love to, but I think it's going to happen. Does anyone else agree with mark nimba? Am I going to be seriously overpaying? Also the car has manufacturers warranty through June, and then becomes a certified Audi, cost included.
