    20,000 miles and beyond....

    Ultimate daily driver. Clipped the 20k mark driving home from work. What a thrill and a blessing to own this car.

    It's gone on date nights, it's been on road trips, it's gone drag racing, it's been auto crossing, and it's been on Sebring at over 150 MPH.

    Get out there and drive yours!!!

    Awesome , I drive my R8 very often too , got over 4000 miles since I got the car 4 months ago. Buy it , drive it , race it , enjoy it as much as possible or we have the other group of guys that buy it , keep it in the garage , take it out once a month

    My GT is 3 miles short of crossing 10k miles. I drive it whenever I want to, yet not so much it becomes routine. I've had 3 glorious days at Circuit of the Americas, hitting 162 on the back straight. The tune, exhaust sounds, wheels & tires, everything is just perfect for me. However, it is currently having all of the PPF replaced because of some discoloration of the old stuff. It was one of those things where once you see it, you couldn't not see it, so it had to be corrected. If not for that, I would be in it now enjoying this beautiful September weather we're having. I do love this car!

    Same here, crossed 20k a few weeks ago. Daily driver, backroad bomber, road tripper and track toy. This car does it all well. I’ve seen 170mph on the back straight at VIR but haven’t done any drag strip stuff.

    Well done Nos... I think being able to chuck the miles on without fearing the depreciation is a talent in itself!

    Good for you Nosferatu. A milestone that's certainly commendable. Will we be adding any more miles with another R8 meet and drive soon? Safe motoring my friend.

    Enjoy it in good health. I'm up to 11K miles already on mine. Have only changed the oil! and Audi Care took care of it!

    Not a Gen II but Ive had mine for 3 years. 2009 4.2 with 26K when I bought it in May 2016. Now has 71k on it. I Drive the piss out of it. Have been 180 on the smooth roads in south Texas. It never misses a beat, ever. I keep the maintenance on it regularly and always use Shell 93 octane gas. I also use Liqui Moly oil. The only thing I have done to mine is an Avior exhaust and K&N filters.
