After 12 years I needed to sell my 2009 V8. I have enjoyed everyday of ownership. I used to say the Audi R8 is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. I now say it is the most fun you can have, period. My R8 put a smile on my face every time I would see it, whether in my garage, coming out from a store, restaurant or at the track.

I have met some of the best friends I have in life from this forum. I had the best times in my life sharing times at the track with friends from this forum. Look up "can you say close" to see just one example of fun times. Going sideways at 156 miles per hour at turn one at Brainerd International Speedway made my heart go pitter patter. Look up some of the early "looks and stares" to see how people 12 years ago reacted to the R8. I have found myself watching some old videos of my R8 at the track on YouTube since I sold my car, grrr8r8. I wish I were a better driver so I could have gotten more out of this spectacular automotive achievement.

I have learned so much from this forum and the members. What a class act this forum is for its members. Thank you to all who have helped me and been my friend.

I purchased a new A8L. My previous A8L gave up the ghost and I needed a sedan.

Don, thank you for the years of awesome contribution and discussion here - I sure hope you'll continue to stick around. With 12 years of ownership under your belt, you certainly have a lot share here regardless of what's in the garage!
