I drive mine on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday to keep the car feeling special.

Every Day - it's my only car. It still feels special every day.

Now at 21,000 miles since March

Almost every day. Going on 5 months and 6400 miles.

We should try to get together one of these days... I'm in Marin!

2 or 3 times a week depending on what's on with the kids at the weekend etc

Still feels great every time :)

Two to three times a week. My other car is leased (550i), so I need to make it at least worthwhile. Occasionally need the room and don't like driving the r8 all the time in the rain (winter).

I only bring mine out on special occasions...


I have found however that having an R8 in the garage makes every day a special occasion! :D :D :D :D

I've had my car for almost one year now and have +/- 9,000 miles on it. I have to drive my A-4 Avant (chipped to 300hp) once or twice a week as the battery will go dead.

Four times a week - and any journey more than 30 miles
I have not seen ice silver in person, how do you like that as compare to gray or white? Love to see some pictures, I have seen enough professionally shot with all the lighting to exaggerate all the curve, but would not mind to see pics of the car in a real world setting

Quite a lot, taking into account that it now has over 12,000 km.

Generally I tend to use the A8 for long trips where comfort is paramount and family use, and the R8 otherwise.

The SL 350 is my wife's toy. She likes convertibles.
