    Does this look right?

    Hi Fellow Members,

    I’m looking at buying this R8 and noticed the photo appears to show gaps where the wheel liner / bumper / front bonnet trim meet each other...

    Are the gaps normal or could it be something more sinister?

    Is it missing the rubber edges to the top of the wheel liner?

    See this thread for more info

    The rubber strip at the top of the wheel, see this photo ...

    Those rubber seals that X-UFO has identified as missing are around £80 each so you may want to negotiate that into the purchase price.

    Yep. Those things can fall out easily. In fact, I think one of mine is missing.

    Also, does this look like a good buy?

    Looks nice but the wheels are ugly.

    It looks to be a nice, un-modded example. The mileage is low and the optional bucket seats are rare and very desireable.

    Thanks Trev- do you know if the alloys are standard finished or have they been messed around with?

    They look like they have been machine polished.
