  • Hopefully the frame isn’t cracked by the front suspension they’re notorious for that.

  • You can't call that car "kinda a winter beater" lol

  • I was going to by a 2010 R8 V10 coupe, but they sold it before I could get my money together. I bought a 2011 R8 Spyder site unseen. There was nothing wrong with the car mechanically, but because it was a convertible the seat is pushed way forward, so that the top's mechanical can fold down behind it. I'm only 5'-10" as I was cramped in the car. I was so disappointed, I couldn't believe that I had this nice car that was so uncomfortable to drive. I sold it after 8 months. I bought a Ferrari F-430 Berlinetta.

  • A friend works at Audi. He always says, you can buy every Audi, car guys don‘t like. 4 cylinder diesel... bigger engine, bigger problems. We live in Germany, 70% of Audis are small Diesel. These cars are reliable, but v8 and v10 are a real nightmare. Very poor quality, like Porsche and Bmw.

  • I baught a 2007 A4 for a daily. Paid 500 bucks. I thought "what a deal" until I had to replace the cam and cam follower, plus cam chain tensioner (Which is the worst to do on the B7) also did a complete timing belt job with pulleys ect. Suddenly my 500$ became a 1500$ car. Still a deal in the end tho.

  • i bought a few super cars off coparts and i can tell you they all suck! it takes a ton to get them fix but whats worse it takes a mint annually to maintain them. best thing you should of done was invest in a luxury car like a Bentley or any high end car that's made by a automaker under a cheaper automakers brad you can find the same parts the high end cars use in the cheaper cars and save a ton on parts and maintenance and bypass the headaches

  • I first drove a 2017 and experienced the same rough shifting you experienced. Then learned Audi changed the auto trans in 2018. Drove two 2018 and the trans is way better. When I did my homework on these 2 cars, one with 4000 miles and the other 5000 miles, I learned they were both leased, raced at a track then turned back into dealer.

  • Seatbelts. Seatbelts. Seatbelts. Seriously. I survived driving off a 300 foot cliff in Malibu in my Corrado because I was wearing a seatbelt. I am absolutely perplexed why people as quick witted as yourself and your wife would fail to put on seatbelts when they drive around in a super car.

  • I’m sure someone already commented, but it’s a single clutch automated manual trans, same as the SMG on the e46, e9x, and e60 M cars. They are fast shifting and somewhat violent at full throttle, but terrible when driving slow. With that said, if you understand the technology, it’s actually livable. It’s essentially a robotic arm that engages the clutch the same way you would with your left foot and a manual clutch pedal, and disengages the throttle while it’s shifting the same you would lift off the throttle with your right foot in between the shifts. There is a reason why those v8 R8 auto’s are so cheap these days. Ideally, you want these with a gated 6 speed manual, or go with the newer dual clutch. Either will be much more expensive. Separately, I know you commented back on IG saying that the 4.2’s are more reliable, but they have direct injection and are prone to carbon built up on the valves that rub you off HP. I almost purchased an RS4 with the 4.2l v8 from my friend who was the original owner and had only 14k miles on it with a condition that it would put down close to stock numbers on the dyno. I actually paid for the dyno session and it was down roughly 12% on power. With that said, it’s not super expensive to have the carbon cleaned out every 15-20k miles. Love the vids, but you gotta do your research more thoroughly Craig before you get yourself in a bind like this ;)

  • A family member has owned 4 Audis, 2 of which have been R8s. Both were used as daily drivers. Reliability was excellent. On the first R8 he damaged something going over a bump and the repair bill was close to $10k. Where I live, Grey, white, black and silver are popular colors so it's rare to find an R8 in a blue or indeed red.

You have the info tell us now. Why does EVERY TRvisionr do this shit. It takes MORE time and effort to do that then just play the whole video through. But nope let’s waste more time at the computer when we could have had it all finished in one day.
