Talking Went to an AUDI afternoon party yest, R8 looked GREAT

My missus' dad works for AUDI so we went down there, in the bmw
(best lookin car there in my opinion, apart from the r8)

and had look around. Lovely new dealership smelt all new and clean.. the dealership have just upgraded to this new building/workshops/showroom at a cost of £4m it was a sort of opening/celebration party, and a chance to have good look around the new R8 before next weeks arrive and drive!

Stevie A, there was one of your favourite saloons in there i didnt pay much attention to it tho...

they have currently 3 R8's, one wrapped up ready for its new owner, one showroom and one demo!!:rocks:


me and the missus tryin the demo out for size

suits us dont ya think..

me again, but with the look cool







my missus trying out the showroom model



















coupla vids of me revving the v8 to 8k





here is some of moir posing in the showroom model.




















AINT FINISHED YET STILL ADDING PICS. Blinkin thing just posted it up half way thru. LOts more pics to come. of a5 also

What Audi dealership is that ? It's not Chelmsford, Cambridge, Stortford or Southend? Not that I've been visiting recently

shame the R8 lacks any decent pedals.. the rest of the interior is very smart.

Wow S5 is surprisingly cheap ? What's the vanilla A5 go for then ?

R8, just not convinced...

fabric dust Cover is great... interior seriously naff, A4 Quattro looks better inside in my opinion, what's with those bloody awful air vents ! '80's throwback !

Awsome looking facilities though, what a cool place to work

Nope! I just spent a lot of time looking at Audi's before going down the BMW route.

Bury (near Manchester) or Bury St Edmunds? Just being nosy
Looks like a nice new facility, similar to the one at Stansted/Stortford

Nope sorry - dont like the look of the R8 at all. The back of it is completely pants.
And what's the story with that S5.... looks like it is jacked up or something. Surely it does not normally sit that high up?????

Great photo shoot though

Not taken with the R8 side profile at all and the back looks way over-designed. Maybe it's better in the metal...although it looks infinitely better without Carlos in the driver's seat!

Sounds nice though.

Don't beat about the bush....say what you really think

Each to their own, there's no accounting for taste, it walks all over any BM IMHO design wise thereby rendering all our cars piles of shite also

wow...this is what i call a DEALERSHIP! lol...all european dealerships are so nice! I remember the Porsche dealer across from Porsche's factory was so nice we mistaken it as the museum! This makes the decision between 335, M3, and S5 a lot harder. If I had the $, I'd choose R8! great pics man!
