  1. Winter time is ruff.

    General Discussion
    I think they're definitely attracted to the heat that the electronics put out... same reason you tend to find them inside AC compressor units outside - they go straight for the little area that houses the circuit board, capacitors, etc. I also wonder if covering the car makes it worse. I don't...
  2. Winter time is ruff.

    General Discussion
    Yes, little critters are always a danger. I keep a few traps around the car just to be on the safe side. Here in CT, field mice are definitely abundant. I keep the car in an attached garage, well insulated, so it reduces the risk as much as possible... but I'm not sure there's any silver bullet.
  3. When your R8 doesn’t want to stop!!!

    General Discussion
    Who planted those bushes in the middle of the road??
  4. Ferrari F12 thoughts

    General Discussion
    I very much like the F12 - not enough to buy one, but if I were in the market for a front engine exotic, this would be on the list. The TDF is certainly the one to have, but now you're into super silly money. The F12 stands out as much more high strung, though, among typical front-engine...
  5. New V10 Owner Thoughts and Not-So-Brief Introduction

    General Discussion
    Congratulations! The R8 is an exceptional car - very special, as you're beginning to find out. The looks, driving dynamics, engine, history - it's the whole package. Enjoy it!
  6. Just picked up a gen1 v10 - aux issue

    General Discussion
    Ahh - I thought you were referring to the AMI port and had a USB/phone connector on it.
  7. Finally purchased a 2015 R8 Competition

    General Discussion
    Congratulations! Enjoy it!
  8. Just picked up a gen1 v10 - aux issue

    General Discussion
    Not sure which cable(s) you've attempted to use and devices, but I do know that some cables will only charge the device and not transmit audio - as silly as that sounds. This may not be the case if you've attempted various cables. Perhaps there's a down-stream issue with the cable (in the car)...
  9. Any options for updating Media console?

    General Discussion
    I'm in the camp of "leave it alone." Yes, it's outdated, but it fits the car... aesthetically, technically, and in-period. When you start to change something so integral, inevitably a few things happen: - It never quite looks right. No matter how well you do it, it won't have the fit and...
  10. Banks that lend $120-130k...

    General Discussion
    I was teasing our buddy, aquarianuw - I knew he was a dentist :)
  11. If you could swap your Gen 1 for Gen 2

    General Discussion
    Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder - so it's a bit counter-intuitive then to suggest that differing opinions must be "totally absurd and devoid of honesty"? Quite harsh. Well, you wanted posters from this thread to respond - I'm one of them. You want honesty - here you go. This post...
  12. Audi R8 Sales In The U.S. Dropped By Nearly 40% Last Year

    General Discussion
    I wish I could agree with these statements, but I don't think either is accurate. The Huracan and Gen-2 R8 are siblings. While the R8's sales have been dropping off a cliff, the Huracan's sales have actually been rising. Both are well established cars - neither are new on the scene, but the...
  13. Banks that lend $120-130k...

    General Discussion
    There are definitely a number of variables at play - most notably: Loan Amount Term Credit Rating There's typically a sweet spot on loan amount - too low or two high, and the the rate goes up. On term, the shorter the term, the better the rate. Again, there's typically a sweet spot - I...
  14. Bad suspension, dings, bad front diff...

    General Discussion
    See, I took it completely differently. Very much like a bad employee starts a discussion with telling you the 100 reasons why they weren't able to accomplish their task, attempting to head off the inevitable realization that they DIDN'T accomplish said task, I felt this long-winded explanation...
  15. F430 vs V10 R8

    General Discussion
    So, when I was buying this car, I gave myself a very healthy budget and cross shopped nearly everything under the sun - well, anything about $400k and under. My final three came down to: Ferrari 355F1 GTS R8 V10 Ferrari 458 For a lot of people, this was probably the weirdest line-up they...
  16. Bad suspension, dings, bad front diff...

    General Discussion
    No, no, and no. The fact that a car gets to the point where ALL of these things are the way they are shows zero pride of ownership IMHO. Front diff out; shocks dead; door dings; broken vents; heat damaged parts; rough start; etc.. Any of those things can reasonably happen, but the fact that...
  17. 2020 R8 Spyder...Seat Oddness

    General Discussion
    Assuming your wife isn't considerably over 6 foot tall, it sounds like an adjustment problem. R8's tend to have ample headroom. I don't have any experience in a 2020, but these cars are fairly well known for accommodating tall drivers and passengers, alike. I'd expect both seats to adjust to...
  18. Hi all,

    General Discussion
    Thanks Roger - looks like the 6,350 number is the grand total then. I had taken a snapshot of the 2015 production breakdown that someone else had previously posted (may have even been you?) - the numbers square, showing 720 total cars for 2015, or 717 given the poster's assertion that only 57...
  19. Exotics, Supercars, and Exotic Supercars

    General Discussion
    Hahaha... my pleasure, Roger. I had just read one too many articles on the C8, I suppose, that clearly confused these terms. On the former point, you're absolutely correct. On the latter point, I'd say it's questionable whether these terms are applied at a point in time (production) or at...
  20. Exotics, Supercars, and Exotic Supercars

    General Discussion
    Yes, I'd say so. Think about an exotic car dealership. They tend to specialize in the rare, unusual, non mass-production vehicles - but they're not all blazing fast (i.e. supercars). Exotic is exactly as you'd expect to find it defined in the dictionary. Exotic comes from the Latin meaning...
