    new Tango R8 Performance at Belfast Audi

    Left my car in for the breather hose recall and couldn't help but spot this stunning Tango red Performance with black badges and a ***t load of options totalling £34k+. I don't think you could even spend that much on the previous Plus, as carbon blades etc were standard. Some of the package combinations seem rather odd; it may just be how the dealer has displayed them on the stand.

    Overall, I'm not really taken with the facelift - the horizontal black band at the back doesn't show much imagination, the front is better but a bit busy now with some strange angles, and the large oval pipes protruding from the rectangular carbon housing looks like a design fail IMO. Still a stunner though, but not for beauty. Factory black badges look good and I ordered up a set from the Parts Manager today (for less £$ than posted elsewhere in this forum). Hopefully pick them up on Friday and I'll post the part numbers if any one is interested.

    Michelin PS4S are fitted to this car which is good news. Note they have the AO (Audi Option) homologation rather than the gen1 and gen2 RO1 / RO2 (quattro) homologation.

    Another thing I noticed, the pipes from the silencer box down to the exit ports are now wrapped in a heat shield material; you can just about see it the square-on rear photo below.

    Best part is still the R8 grill badge.

    That is honestly FUGLY to say the least. The front bumper is gastly, the rear bumper grill insert is VILE, the RS3 style cheapo looking exhausts are so so awful i dont know what to say about them. Its gone from classy to try hard beyond belief and i have a feeling the prefacelift cars will be holding value thanks to this attempt

    I'm kinda in agreement. Looks like the new Honda Civic method of styling --- add it all on, ie trying way too hard. This car doesn't need ANY fake crap. Just leave it as simple which is best

    Those are some of the goofiest looking wheels I've seen.
    I won't mention the fake vents.

    I was feeling the front in the promo shoots but for this one, I’m not liking anything.
