The 1st gen R8 does absolutely nothing for me pal. The gen2 is absolutely superb and I’ve got first hand experience. Although, I’ve never driven one.Hard choice Gaz as both very different cars. Like you say you have wanted an RS6 as long as I’ve known you , and justnow they have dropped in price quite a bit with the new one released last year.
R8 is a nice car and fast while still being useable, short term you shouldn’t loose much on one.
Other option is a last of line gen 1 R8 with the S tronic dual clutch box and probably lost all its money and holding now.
Ahh ok, toast n cheese.It's Gally I just meant build an RS6 like Al's.
I want the R8, but I don’t want debt. I’m in the middle of house hunting, so I’ll see what that brings to the table first.Surely R8 then rs6, you'll always wonder what if, if you don't go r8 or more realistically.... when you do go rs6 then r8 then back to rs6 it will cost considerably more (no matter how many people tell you (residuals are strong on both) it will be more than most pay for the car they have on the drive in depreciation in 5 years, you seem like you have your head on your shoulders lad just crack on and get the one you actually want
I love how the RS3 they link to for sale there says something like ‘almost every option ticked’, then lists hardly anything that’s an optionR8 then another R8.
