does anyone make a full suspension system for the R8? auto height adjustable like the ones for the MB and the Lamborghinis? Will be moving into our new property soon, but the driveway's a killer. I could barely make it with the Gallardo lifted.

I was constantly having migraines dealing with the same issues. We actually repaved our whole entire driveway last year. Now the headache is gone.:D

due to how the property is situated (moving to a more hilly area), repaving is out of the question according to Buildings / Planning Department at the city - GRRRRR

I scraped the under carriage of my R8 the first time out of my driveway. Now I go in and out at a severe angle.

I contacted our city and they said it is okay to change the curb design with a permit. I received bids of $1200-$1800US to remove and replace the concrete entrance to my driveway. I will have it done in the spring. My car is in storage for the winter.

I was recently over at Stasis Engineering in Sonoma, CA. Not only are they putting the finishing touches on their exhaust system, they'll be releasing a suspension and possible brake upgrade soon.

Hello,

KW are working on the HLS system which allows cabin adjustment of the ride height so perfect if you are living somewhere where the drive has clearance issues.

For the moment if your R8 dose not have magnetic ride then the V3 coilover suspension kit is available.

Kind regards,

Ed

I believe the Magnetic suspension is standard for all 09s
