    If you want to customise/choose the letters/numbers on the plate then that is when you have to pay the extra yearly/anual fee.

    Really nice work!

    That machining of the inlet ports is interesting. I wonder if it would be worth getting the dremel out and taking off all those sharper edges?

    Great effort. Looks like a lot of fun. I'd be very happy with 5th outright. Goes to show what a bit of ethanol and quattro can do!

    Very nice RS3, looks great with the black wheels. Not a fan of the OEM ones.

    Great stuff, I had missed it before. Looks like a lot of fun. How do you get involved? part of a club? CAMS licence required?

    Need a seriously thick front sway bar to fix the under steer.

    Yep, really sad way to end what was an epic build and such a relatively rare car.

    I'm assuming you will not be able to wait long before getting onto any project? Any thoughts for the future?

    Thank makes sense. Probably wouldn't want to run up miles on an RS6. I would think the NA V8 would also be quite economical cruising on the highway. Is that model before direct injection?

    Interesting choice from forced induction to NA V8? Would be a good interstate cruiser though.

    Why not consider a C5 RS6? IMO they seem like a great buy now and relatively solid car as far as I...

    Really impressive numbers! Looking forward to seeing some 0-100 and 1/4 mile times with the E85. Any expectations? The quattro should be good for getting the traction down.

    Saw this R8 with a massive rear wing and spoiler kit. Looked set up for track. Must be a nightmare around the street unless it has a front lift.
