    2008 R8 Daytona Grey

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking on this forum for a while but am finally able to post since I just purchased a 2008 R8 in daytona grey. I was able to get a pretty good deal on this car due to the high mileage - the car has 144K km on the odometer, but the engine only has about 20K km on it. There's definitely items that need to be fixed up on this car, so I hope to learn lots from fellow members here.

    Some combinations with the 'old' side blade look better than others. Your's looks good. Enjoy

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Sorry haven't checked this thread in a bit.

    The only info I have is that the previous owner spun a rod bearing on the old engine. He purchased a low mileage engine from a salvage yard and had the dealer install it.

    I've had this car for a little over a month now and this car has had a rough life. It's going to be a long journey restoring as much as I can...

    At least most of the paint/body still looks decent.

    I think this is a car that I had my eye on. Very nice looking from the picture but I’ve always been a sucker for Daytona grey.

    Would like to hear more on the issues and progress. Good luck with it and hope you enjoy it.
