New Purchase

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was a big day, I bought my first exotic! My 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder is in Daytona Grey Pearl with black leather. I found the car in PA and a friend from our Cars and Coffee group drove me to get it yesterday morning. I had the local Audi dealer do a PPI and the car inspected very well. It needs a little cosmetic attention so it's at Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing in New Albany for some paint correction and basic clean up. Overall, the car is fantastic and I had a nice 3+ hour drive home yesterday. Thanks to LP member Ryan335 for meeting us at the dealership to be part of it!

Thanks all for the kinds words. I'm considering wheel options. For now, I'm going to refinish the OEM wheels, they're currently too chrome looking for my taste. I'm debating between black or gunmetal/dark grey/body color. Here's a Photoshop of how they'd look black. I also did a gold/bronze concept just to see it. I don't think it works on the Spyder as well as the coupes.

Dark gray/gunmetal. Nothing on the car pulls the bronze together. Looks great.
