      Great pics, but what I really want is to hear that V10 hitting redline, because every time I see an R8, that's what comes to mind.

      To say I am smitten would be an understatement. I plan to get one more shoot in with the avant and the R8 once it hits in a couple of weeks.
      Im gonna be a dick in my own thread as these cant get lost on the last page....

      Damn, those are some lovely shots. I also miss driving the R8 through Chicago and screaming "LAMBO" out the window.

      Photos are awesome. Even though I didn't get a chance to ride or drive the R8, just sitting in it for a few minutes was a treat.

      Every time I think I want to leave Chicago, I see some pics of downtown which banishes all thought of doing so from my head. Those pics on Lakeshore Drive are awesome.

      Since I was downtown last weekend, here's some for you....hopefully someday we can get you and the Mrs. out on it:

      The rolling shots are fantastic. The static shots were looking good until I got to the third or fourth one, with the reflection of the photographer in the bumper. Big mistake that shouldn't have gotten past the photographer.

      I saw that too, but was more concerned with whatever that imperfection is on the paint, because that aint there IRL.

      But I do agree....

      Yup. I realize that my post sounded extremely negative, but it was more because I was impressed with the quality of the work. Then- bang! Bad photo sticks out like a sore thumb.

      I get it.

      Especially for shots that were paid for. The rest of the work is phenomenal though.

      Wow, first time seeing this thread. Im from Barrington so the cars n coffee pics a couple pages back really bring back some memories. Wasnt a bad place to grow up. Also makes me think of the insane rolling shots I got of my Golf R in downtown Chicago back in the day. Going to have to revisit those. Hopefully your RS6 can live up to the R8...
