    Parked up at JapFest yesterday.

    On Saturday It had a minor detail. Washed, clayed, machine polished.
    Not perfect but is 1000% better than what ever I could do.

    Saw 5 white Mk2 MPS at JapFest, only one was in better condition than mine. They really are getting to ten years old :(

    Heh, actually made it there without an issue. Apart from when the coolant temp reached 102c in traffic which for some reason set my ABS and traction lights to turn on... Heh. Once cooled they went off, very odd.

    He's on the front number plate. Also located on the driver's door shut.

    Mr meeseks was removed because I hit a bush and tore him to shreds hahaha

    What are the nav issues you speak of? The mark x has everything on the main monitor too. Maybe im lucky to not have had any problems with either if mine. Probably best for you to change out the whole unit for a uk spec one anyway. While there is a way to translate the monitor into English it's very secretive how to do it. The nav system isnt too hard to translate, I got mine running in English on the original jap unit but it wasnt perfect so I put a uk lexus navi computer in.

    yeah. I dont know him but genuinely humbled yesterday. He is a ambasidor for Rays of sunshine, which is terminal children. He meets kids with not long left etc and they love him.

    Yesterday they raised over 40K for the charity selling things like a drive with Yanni at 1k each, they sold a drive last year and a week later the kid passed. Incredibly sad.

    I love the current and last gen R8, but in that picture I thought yours was a 1st gen car until I looked really close!

    A lot of the sharp line get softened from a distance.

    Great cause by the way.

    Had a VIP event for the new F8 Tributo for Ferrari to tease some Crypto out of me.

    Nah, not interested in Ferrari one bit, but didn't want to create a whole new thread so thought it could go in here.

    Ferrari have been a huge let down lately... the F8 is just a face lifted 488, which is already a downgrade from the 458
