New to the forum. Looking to buy an R8 (V8). Price range of $85-95,000. Most likely will be purchasing around March (winter where I live is really bad so I see no point in buying it now), but that doesn't mean we can't work out a deal for the future.

I personally have never seen one sell for that little. Not even an 08. I'm assuming you might get lucky at those numbers if its a higher mileage 08. But your best bet to get at that price range would be NOW, in the middle of the winter months. Come March, prices will only increase a bit....

Been looking around and found a few in Canada selling for about 98K with 20K km's on it so about 12,500 miles. And I have decided to get one ASAP as I need an AWD car for the winter cause my M5 just isn't cutting it. Been forced to drive my BMW 335i (x-Drive) and old Cayenne around in the winter. I miss the power to say the least.

I've also been trying to sell my M5 for 45K. It is an 06, SMG transmission, Indianapolis Red, 29K miles on it. If I can get the car sold for 45K, I will have the R8 before the new year no problem. The issue lies in selling the car.

Guys another thing I forgot to mention, because of NAFTA, if I do purchase the vehicle in the US, I will have to pay 5% tax (Alberta Tax) and an additional 6.1% (due to the fact that the car is manufactured in Germany). So 11.1% tax on top of the vehicles original price. So keep that in mind guys and thanks again for all the info/support.
