2008 Audi R8: Brake Dust Not Helping Its Image
December 23, 2008
Combine an odd stretch of actual weather in Southern California with some spirited driving and you get this - a filthy car with equally disgusting wheels.
Brake dust hasn't been too much of a problem with the R8, but when it builds up the results are pretty sad looking. If anything, it reaffirms the fact that we actually drive this thing like a real car. A garage queen it is not.
That said, after seeing the R8 in this condition I had to get it cleaned up, even with the threat of more rain on the way.
