Hi,

Sorry for my ignorance but I think I finally found the color I want for my R8 and I don't know if this is what you call, Daytona Grey with Ice Silver sideblades? Please let me know since I will most likely be depositing for the car this sunday. Thanks!

I think those are the oxygen silver optional extra.

I do not think they are Oxygen Silver as they would then match the fuel cap, these appear to be darker and are probably Quartz Grey.

R8 ENGLAND had originally Oxygen Silver and I remember him says that they were as bright and shiny as the fuel filler cap.

they're pics of 2 different cars, the second car blades definitely looks lighter than the quartz grey top pics.

Same car my friend, look at the backgrounds - both the same. The angle and the lighting can make it very deceiving.

The locations still look different to me - the wall behind the glass is red/orange in the first, and the restroom signage on the wall - but agree that lighting can have strange effects.

The more I look at it, the more I think you're right that it's the same car - even if it is a different location, it looks like the same stand and it'd make sense for it to be the same car.

L3MAN I think you might be right. They really look like the same car and same stage. I think if u look at the wall in the back it shows that they are both the same....Anyway my dealer told me no matter the sideblades he can always order them and switch them out for me. Do you think he uses Exotica-Motorsports? lol Also do you guys think I should take it only if it comes with the right sideblades the first time? Let me know ASAP...thanks guys for all the help.

Make sure you get your choice right first time, why waste the $$$$$ on spare blades. If you think this way you may then decide on carbon which in my opinion is the best combo with Daytona Grey. I will send you a pm re e-mail for pics. Sorry pics too much memory for this site.

Thank you L3MAN I have sent you a reply with the e-mail address so shoot those pix over at your convenience. Thanks Again!

Oh! by the way does Audi let you order Carbon Fiber for the interior at all? I saw some pic somewhere with Carbon Fiber interior and it looked beautiful. Thanks!

Looks like the first set of pics and the second one are different places just using the same display booth. The surroundings are totally different. I'm gonna vote on the second one being oxygen silver and the first one quartz grey.
