I will soon be joining the list of Vancouver R8 owners. My V10 will arrive in August. Ibis White with carbon fibre blades. Looking forward to it, and the Maryhill event sounds great. I ordered the car in Feb. of '07, so it has been a long wait. I travelled to Neckarsulm last month to take a look at the R8 plant and the tour was excellent. The first Canada-bound cars were just coming off the line, so some should be showing up at dealers soon.
I have seen a black(shiny) with body colour blades in town, too. My personal favourite of those I have seen here.
