Took my car out to a local cafe and parked it for the 1st time, within 5 minutes there were about 10 people swarming around the car (i was sitting by the window at a table watching). I am amazed the buzz this car still has, 2years after its release!!!!!

Yes, Audi definitely made a big splash in the $100k+ car territory.

I think to many are not driving them enough. I can't believe the attention my car is getting, In the few days I have owned keep hearing from people they have never seen one. Odd for a car that has been out for two years. I know mine will get seen, I hit most Audi, VW and car gtg's in my area, Have yet to see an R8 at any.

I drive mine everyday...and I am amazed how often I am stopped by people who just want to talk about the car. I really don't think a day goes by, I don't have at least one comment. And....I have yet to see another on the road.

Were you ever able to get the ink out of the seats?

I had to smile when I read how people swarm around your car, mine has the same effect! I love the fact that on a nice day you'll see 100 corvettes, but likely no other R8's. You will, however, see 100 drooling Corvette owners!

Not yet, trying to find the right stuff to use 1st.
Advice from leather expert is that the first 24 hours is crucial, after that it goes through the protective layer. Easy enogh to get repaired by a specialist though and it is invisible.
