Here in The Netherlands the first cars are deliverd. The importer has two, one silver and one Daytona!

On the dutch AutoRAI there are two: a white one and a black one with standard sideblades.

I'll try to post pictures as soon as I can. Unfortunately they were made with my compact camera

First R8's are arriving here in the second half of May! Mine in June!

I think the UK was originally expecting R8s to start arriving in late May to early June ... as I think the UK is about 4 to 6 weeks behind mainland Europe (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) ... I suspect the first R8s will not arrive here till July(ish) ... :confused:

Oh and! Ceramics can be ordered indeed! And:

Audi Exlusive can be ordered also from now! The wite R8 was completely white inside, with Audi Exclusive labels.

First R8's were initially planned here for begin of May. So they are delayed a week or 2. In the first weeks only 1, sometimes 2 per week are delivered. I'm number 4 on the list :)

Hang in their Paul, we should all hopefully know by early next week.

But, I think you could be correct in saying early July, anything sooner would have to be treated as a bonus.

What is bad from a UK point of view is that the release/production details along with final specing will happen just as people go away for Easter. More problems, as I will be away for two weeks just as this all comes to a head. I can see some lengthy long distance e-mails to finalise my spec and details.

Again Audi are not really being fair with their loyal and patient client base:mad: :mad: :mad:

Do you know anything about Belgium? Should be the same, no?
Also what is this Exclusive? Does this mean that you can order your inside and/or outside in every colour you want?

Fascinating that Exclusive & CC brakes may be available sooner rather than later.....Maybe the Audi Marketing people ARE trolling the 'boards! and listening to us!

What I understood is that Audi tries to equally divide the production capacity over the LHD countries first. So also Belgium should get the first cars as from week 21.

Is this not a form of discrimination to the RHD markets :D :D :D :D :D

Maybe so, but at least we get the added benefit of not being Belgian. :p
