And R8England, not to be tiresome, but does your car have the "new" nav. with hi-res. screen, traffic, etc.? And would you care to share your serial production number (last 3 digits of your vin)? It's really not something anyone can do anything with, but it you don't wish to divulge it, could you give us a "ballpark" (like "under 100", or "between 100 and 150")? It appears that all R8's are in the same series, as other digits of the vin code for the engine/emissions options.And mine since June 2009
Do a search on this forum and you will find threads from both T-Mike and myself on our first impressions.
Thanks for sharing that. Clearly your car IS serial numbered as a late '09 with that ....041xx number. (100 odd cars/wk x 40 odd building wks./yr?).No, mine was the first of the UK customer cars, late May production week (2009 model year). It has the "old" nav. It does have traffic, but then so did my previous R8V8. Free traffic reports are standard with European systems, and have been for some years. The system works very well.
VIN is N0041XX. It is in the very low 100's.
I was originally told the new NAV would be for production after they re-open from the August shutdown. But it seems that, from other posts, this has been brought forward.
I was informed by both Audi UK, and at the factory when I picked up the car, that the year change over was 1-2 weeks after mine. i.e. June 2009.Thanks for sharing that. Clearly your car IS serial numbered as a late '09 with that ....041xx number. (100 odd cars/wk x 40 odd building wks./yr?).
My awaited 2010 is ...0551 with a build week of July 7. I was told the model year changeover began with June! Lots of confusion about this, I think!
