    dickbag, learn to read. Wasn't going to say anything until I read your remark about me. Fuck you and your jealousy you little bitch. Drive your shitty 350 and shut the fuck up. God you're stupid [​IMG]
    He said he'd pick the R8 over anything besides the Vantage, then went on (unless I am mistaken) to praise it (the Vantage) for those mentioned reasons since he only mentioned two cars and I took it from his use of "more" that he was comparing the two. Unless he was comparing the R8 to the 911 or sports cars in general, in which case his point is completely correct and I'm wrong. You still haven't told me how you earned your $60k at 19. I refuse to make a point based on name calling and appeals to emotion.

    you're totally retarded. He CLEARLY said "maybe" which means that he still isn't even sure if he would take the Vantage over the R8. And his use of "costs less" clearly shows that he was referring to the R8. Are you really this stupid in real life? [​IMG]

    actually no. Rube is always chirped for being an old man. Second, he trolls my posts like no tomorrow.

    And I like how I'm the cunt when the guy I was referring to clearly came out of left field and starts talking his shit.[​IMG]

    So you haven't had problems with the suspension?

    The DRC suspension on the RS4 isn't used on the R8, so I left it out of the discussion.

    My DRC did fail after about 10k miles. I replaced it with Stasis SL coilovers and love love love them. The car is so much better on them. Handling is better and the ride is surprisingly MORE comfortable. I would never go back to stock suspension.

    I was going to pay 60k cash for a car, but the insurance was a little too ridiculous at 8000 a year. I dont know how often this is the case, but don't discount him solely on that basis. I'm proof that it does happen. Oh yeah, I'm 19 btw.

    Do you run a business, maybe like e-tailing or something? Or did you invent something cool?

    I'm genuinely curious how one ends up with 60-70K cash on hand @19.

    He's obviously given a lot of plasma. Or starred in a lot of pornos.

    If true, having $60k cash at 19 is impressive yet dare I say financially stupid..

    Anyway, I had an Audi R8 for a few months as a leased vehicle. I liked it but would never have purchased it as I don't usually stay in one place for too long [​IMG]

    R8 nice car. Keep in mind all cars but a hand full are a bad investment. Under 25 and want to drive a sports car? I remember when I was 19 and paying through the nose to drive a Corvette. If you can wait till your over 25 and married your insurance will beconsiderably less. By that time the R8 should be a fraction of the price it is now.

    I love this car. I used to review cars and was lucky enough to spend a few days with one. It was white with carbon fibre side blades and brown interior. Excellent handling car, very easy to drive as well. I would buy one in a second. This thread needed some pics, so here's the one I drove.

    ^^^Reviewing cars sounds like fun, especially getting to drive them for a few days.

    I agree... this thread needs more pictures. That Ibis white w/ carbon side blades is a great combination. Here are a few i took a few months back: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I want one, but I will probably never get the chance to drive one in my life.

    The R8 is a car I never liked in photos and when I saw one in real life I was lusting for it!

    To the original poster - I know that this is a) none of my business, and b) probably not what you want to hear, but if you have been fortunate enough to have inherited quite a large sum of money from a relative, please don't spend it a big chunk of it on a rapidly depreciating asset like a car.

    I know that cars are great fun and that most men - young and old - have an almost visceral attraction to sports cars. However, if you do want to buy a sports car, buy a cheaper one. If you want something that's affordable and quite reliable, get a 350Z. If you want cheap fun and fantastic handling, get a Miata (which is what I did). If you want some classic appeal, get an older Porsche that has been well looked after.

    Then, spend some of the money on travelling, and see some of the world if you haven't done so already.

    Then, put the rest of the money into an account with a reasonable rate of return or some other stable, unexciting investment. Use some to pay for your college or university fees, or to purchase an apartment (if that sort of thing is a good investment where you are at present).

    But, please, whatever you do, don't spend well over $100k on a car that, whilst nice, will have lost over half its value in a few short years.

    Unless you are a merchant banker, it's damned hard to earn and to save money. Being given a good chunk of change at a young age is - in very real terms - a great gift. It can help you to get your life off to a great start and lay the foundations for a lifetime of financial security. I know that the temptation is there to throw money around and being young, you should do that - in moderation. But please, save most of it and put it to some productive use because if you don't, you'll probably really regret it in a few years' time.

    I disagree. Spend it on cocaine, scotch, fast cars, and faster women.
