Ladies and Gentlemen, we have all posted many photos of our cars, and many of us have our cars featured in our avatars, we also converse with each other using our login i.d.'s. I was wondering if any of us would like to put a real face to our online identities? So how about posting a photo of yourselves with your R8?

Here's me with mine!

Kudos for starting this thread Dave! Will be interesting to see the faces behind all the posts. Understanbly not everyone will post a pic of themselves here but hopefully some will.

I just realised I don't have a pic of myself next to my R8 but here's me next to the Gen2 during the Audi driving Experience in Singapore. :cool:

FYI - I'm sure this means something totally different where you're from, but the translation of this in US English is pretty bad.
Yikes, I wasn't aware of that. Here in the UK it is slang for a secret agent - James Bond, etc.

I know that meaning and it is too, it is the same in U.K. English but other meanings are ghost or Secret Agent, so I'd like to think Trev was implying I look like 007 LoL.

Doesn't take much courage to post a photo, thanks Howie for contributing.

I didn't realize how few pictures I have with me in them. I'm usually the one taking the picture. I did find a couple. The first one was the day I bought it. I must have been RTFM. LOL

Didn't know you'd parted company with your R8 Markos. What do you have now?

I've downgraded in a big way Trev and got something to see me through a year or two... it's a... it's a... Volvo!! Was hard for me to type that... 5-cylinder turbo makes it kinda fun as I've never had a turbo car before but it clearly can't compare on any level to the R8... Was only ever supposed to own the R8 for 6 months but I ended up having it much longer. I knew the costs of rings/wedding/honeymoon coupled with a softer economy meant it was time to say goodbye. Gone, but not forgotten...

Kudos for admitting to owning a Volvo, Markos. Only kidding. You've owned an R8 which is a lot more than many people will achieve and you've now moved on to another chapter in your life. Hope all goes well for you.

Haha! It's something I've got to take on the chin Trev :D I never thought I'd own a Volvo ever – and it did raise a few eyebrows going from an R8 to that – but it was the right thing to do at the time... I think!

I still check the ads for R8s and some of the prices of early V10s do get me thinking... but then I wonder what other restrictions the Mayor of London will have in store in future to penalise car owners and am then quite happy with my Volvo :D

I know the feeling Markos after having to sell my E-Type years ago, took a long time to get back into something I liked.
