    Purchased the R8 a while back, started to mod the car not long after.

    Then I started modding it

    While it was stock.

    Re: R8 Build thread

    This is absolutely stunning, well done! Can I ask how you had the seats re-done? Did you get 2014 facelift seat covers and work with an upholsterer, or are they fully custom done? Mind if i ask the cost to get that type of change done?

    Thanks!
