I would of course, have to run up to Hartford...2hours away to test drive and see it....but it looks legit..there are not really any CPO'd from Audi dealers anywhere in the US.

Nearly $110K for a used with 17K miles? Cool. You seem to be looking at the same style R8 my buddy bought back in February. His is white/carbon slate, all options, black interior, ect. Here are the pics of his. They paid $107K used and it had just 3K miles. I would not recommend the auto in an R8 but it's personal choice I guess. My buddy's is manual. Best of luck!

seems like a good deal, but after all the things i've heard about that r-tronic transmission i can't say i'd go with it. But that's just me :whistle:

it had 2 years left on the warrenty from Motorcars of Georgia. They are the Lotus, Lambo, Mercedes, Astin Martin dealer here in Atlanta. I don't know if it was certified pre-owned but like I said, it still had the warrenty from Audi of Roswell where it was originally purchased.

With that kind of mileage, that car isn't worth over $100,000 in my opinion. I understand it is CPO'd. That definitely helps out and maybe keeps it around $100,000. That's about it though.

no more than 100k. If it is gonna be a driver, then I say it's a good choice as the CPO is important and the mileage doesn't matter, but if this is gonna be your weekend car, something you dont pound miles onto, from a resale standpoint I think you are better of getting a lower mileage example that will always maintain that "low" mileage.

Test drove today. NOT impressed. Looks amazing, but not really the performance or feel I would expect from a 100k+ car.

I will continue my quest for now.

For $100K, go for a used 997TT, ZR1, Viper SRT10, or Lambo Gallardo

You better not get that 6-speed, the R-tronic is not just faster, but is more fun, I learned how to drive a manual way before I learned about paddle shifters & I still hated it. I had the idea of inventing paddle shifters not knowing they were already out & equipped on cars. Just my $0.2.....

actually, the R-tronics in Audis suck nuts. They are only faster if you can't shift lol Infact, paddles suck in most cars. In Ferraris, Lambos, Paganis, they are good but all others, I find stick more fun. Of course I can no longer do it due to nerve damage in my left foot so F me!!! I love F1 in some cars but not others.
