btw, I have documented ALL the GTs (165 cars) sold in the US, with their Audi OMD Web vehicle details and US-legal Monroney (window sticker) including the "twins" Spyders and Coupes with same numbers - there are 18 pairs ... I have NO personal data on any of the owners, so please don't ask.
Roger, If you've got a photo of my window sticker PM it to me. Mine is #292, the most expensive !! LOL.
I've now converted the interior to European GT spec with Sparco seats etc. and a Red / Grey / Black color scheme though.
Not sure who told you that this car was a Lamborghini color - it's not, but was Exclusive nonetheless (at that time), but according to the data I have (from Audi) it is simply Daytona Gray Pearl (Z7S) ... I'll attach the docs I have to a PM for you -
While I'm here, let me get y'alls opinion on something.
I've been thinking about getting the RS-style grille for my GT, but I would want the whole thing done in matching titanium, like the existing front and rear titanium. I have a buddy with an RS5 and his has the silver grille that looks really sharp on his Suzuka Gray. What do you think? We've all seen them in black. So how do you think one would look in matching GT titanium?
I have a Gen1 V10+ and looked into this with 2 of the forum vendors. After being on the fence about it, I think it ruins the horizontal lines on the front bumper and exclusivity of the GT even if the trim is matching titanium. The GT is already a special spec, so no need to try to make it something unique or to stand out. I opted not to go through with it. If I had a non-plus, then it would be a no brainer because it really looks great with all the black trim vs the titanium.
If you still want to go this route RNlabas did it and recommended 3M’s M230 Matte Gray Aluminum as being pretty close and the cost was $75. I was offered a free wrap after purchasing several items from vendor UPD on here, but the honeycomb mesh is still glossy. If you go to your garage and look at the front honeycomb, you will see how badly gloss clashes. This may not be a big deal on a non-GT, but I think these details are important for a nice spec like yours. There are many sellers on aliexpress/alibaba/ebay that sell a matte version if interested.
The other vendor on here that makes their own using an OEM donor part and paints the trim titanium wanted something like $1800.
HamannP has a point about the gloss, but quite honestly for me, it's not a matter of badly, just a matter of note. If I could've (and I might still) repaint the grill satin or matte it would look better, but I am still pretty happy about the clean look of the RS grill. The gray trim WAS a need for me and the wrap does look right ...
Anyone have a good source for quality Floor mats for 1st Gen?
I see some on Amazon and Ebay. But those are always a chance on quality. I'm not looking for leather or diamond stitch, nothing fancy. Plain black with maybe R8 embroidery? Just good quality material that cleans easily. I don't like...
Hey guys. Not sure if there is an issue with this. Lifted the car and saw this on the drive shift. Looks like it connects the drive shaft to propeller shaft. Still a newbie with this car so not sure if this is normal or a crack. I believe it’s a flex joint or something. SEND HELP PLEASE!

In the market for a gen1 6 speed R8 and the miles are all over the board. Previously I was looking at 997 Turbos and the miles vs. reliability ratio did not seem to matter too much, but now that I turned my focus on the R8s (because they are sooo much cooler IMO 😀), does the miles vs...
