    A Thank you to Ricky Elder.

    I'm not sure if this complies with the rules of this forum, but I would just like to say a big Public " Thank You " to Ricky Elder .

    Very briefly, some weeks ago I asked Ricky to supply and fit a switchable Capristo exhaust to my R8 V10.

    His quote was the most competitive by a long way.

    Between the dates the system was ordered and delivered , I was called into Hospital here in Plymouth in the West Country for heart surgery .

    Whilst in Hospital the exhaust system was delivered to Ricky.

    As some will know he is based in Swindon a fair distance from Plymouth.

    I was eventually discharged from Hospital and after resting up for a week Ricky asked if it would be easier for me to bring the V10 to Bristol for fitment of the exhaust system as opposed to the trek to Swindon.

    I naturally agreed as it represented a very much shorter journey for me.

    Anyway last Saturday I presented myself and the car at a company called " Ramp It Up " in Bristol where Ricky had hired a ramp for the day at no extra cost to me.

    It took 6 hours to fit the system.

    Rickys knowledge and expertise with R8's is second to none . He even lent me his own car to wander around Bristol whilst he was carrying out the work.

    To say I am delighted with the exhaust is an understatement .

    Ricky is without doubt a gentleman and went the extra mile just to help me out.

    It's rare to encounter such good service these days.

    Very professional , I can thoroughly recommend him.

    runner911, you've just been REP'd !!

    I too am a very happy customer of Ricky's, and he has performed some serious modification work on my car (and a few of my friends cars also), all whilst I stood there watching him work and asking him 1,000's of questions.

    Never will my car go to a franchise dealer again. REP all the way !

    Thank you both for your very kind comments!

    Tony it was a real pleasure and seeing both your faces on first start up makes it all worth while!

    You know where I am if you want anything in the future! The distance is never an issue!

    Cheers Ricky

    Re: A Thank you to Ricky Elder.

    That is some truly amazing service Ricky! Wish you were around here so I could finally feel comfortable enough to install Supercharger. My local Dealership says they will do it and they do have a good R8 tech but he has never down one and that has me nervous. Is this a pretty straight forward install that he should have no problems with?

    That is exactly how I would have liked to get my R8 pampered.

    I also would like to publicly thank Ricky.

    Your patience with me asking lots of questions over email re suspension was fantastic and greatly appreciated.

    True gent.

    Too bad Ricky is to far for us in the US .
    I would have him install my exhaust also.
