Yes on the exhust. Trev is right in saying it's the one mod exception.
This is not only because of sound, but of significant weight reduction from the rear-most of the car.
+1 on the exhaust. If the new buyer doesn't like the sound, he/she can get an OEM exhaust for almost nothing. People are virtually giving them away. I saw one recently for like 200 bucks...

Drive the car and keep it good condition.
My car is a 2011 spyder v10 manual .
And had a offer of 115K.recently ..IM the original owner and have under 2000 miles.
So for the guy earlier saying these cars are crashing....yes the junk r8 will crash.
But the good ones will always get all the money...Cars are not investments.
Unless you own hyper cars like Paganis ,Bugattis ,Laferrari...etc
i am sorry to say, r8 is a driver's car it's not really a good collectors for appreciation purposes. Maybe it will be, but you are talking 20 years later or longer. Imagine all the fun you are missing out in 20 years by not driving it! Unless you are one of those that doesnt like to drive, but just like to look at it. Then yes follow everything that Emaazz said and you should be good
R8 V10 (k&n, Kline, VF ECU&TCU)
The other thing someone told me about recently is that a possible indicator is that you can look at when a car first came out, in what year, and then when those of that generation- who were 20-30 - are now turning 40ish they tend to be interested in buying a dream car from their younger years, and generally in a better position to do so. So over the next decade or so the R8 will be in that zone, while also being an end of an era car for Audi.
