Hi there,

you should definately go for the carbon sigma in the engine bay, it really sets the car off plus compliments the rest of the carbon you've already specced.

regards.

Which engine and trans?

I don't think you can go to wrong with almost any configuration of an R8. I know everyone has different ideas of what they like. I liked the carbon engine pieces too, since you have speced the other carbon items. I would say, that if that is the options and color you want then that is what you should get. The car has been around enough that you can probably find some picts of the color and options you have specified.

I have read some mixed responses to the ceramic brakes. Some say they are a bit grabby when cold. They are half the weight and last like five times longer than standard brakes. They have silver calipers instead of the black. They are a pricey option I wished they would have offered in the US for 2009.

Good luck. I hope you get what you want in a timely manor.

Another vote for the carbon sigma in the engine bay, It's like looking at a piece of art work, Especially with the LED lighting on it. I decided less than two weeks ago I wanted an R8. Searched online and found one 250 miles away setup exactly how I would have ordered, Bought over the phone and picked it up last Saturday. Mine is pretty much setup like yours, Minus ceramics and I went with polished wheels
