FS: OEM R8 Sideblades – wrapped in black w/matte clearguard. OEM color is Ice Silver.

The sale continues, gotta get the garage clean. Pair of OEM R8 sideblades that are ice silver, but have been wrapped in black vinyl and protected with matte clearguard from Premier. Blades are in perfect condition. I took these off to add the carbon fiber ones.

First $400 takes em. That’s a little more than it’d cost to have them professionally wrapped without the clearbra.

FS: 20″ Modulare B30

Longtime readers (all 2 of you) will probably be pissed that I finally update my site and it’s a for sale ad LOL. Hope everyone is doing well, here’s the first of a few Audi R8 parts that I’m selling to get the garage clean:

20×8.5 and 20×11 Modulare B30 Monoblock in brush tinted finish
245/30/20 Toyo Proxes T1-R Front – treadwear 8/32 remaining
305/25/20 Toyo Proxes T1-R Rear – treadwear 8/32 remaining



The wheels are the prefect offset for the R8, note that my car is lowered on H&R Springs.


Shot of all 4 wheels and tires. NOTE: I simply placed the centercaps on top, I did not screw them in thus they do not look flush,  but they site completely flush when screwed in. I cleaned everything so I removed the caps obviously.

Shot of the massive rears.

Best detail shot I could find of a 1/2 inch blemish on one of the wheels. I don’t think people would notice this but I’m particular and wanted to point it out. This is in the bright sunlight and due to the finish it’s really tough to see. This wasn’t due to curbing, I believe it was during a mount/dismount.

Rear treadwear digital indicator – got to use my new gadget LOL.

Front treadwear digital indicator – no more pennies for testing LOL.

For you concave freaks – rear wheel shot. This is a great offset/setup.

This set will fit Lamborghini Gallardo as well, in case you’re into that kind of thing. Wheels were never washed with anything but the same soap from that I use on the car (Hi Meguiars!), no harsh detergents. No TPMS is included, you will have to provide your own. If you have any questions shoot me an email at albert@albertroxas.com – would rather not ship so local buyers have an advantage.

Price: $3300 – please don’t waste my time or yours with trades or offers, unless you’re extremely good looking, can paint my house or offer some kind of ritual that will ensure that LeBron will never win another championship.

Thx for looking, I also have a few other R8 items that will be posted shortly.


Carbon Fiber Goodness…

My friends over at Khoalty sent over this sick iPhone 6 Plus true Carbon Fiber PrePreg case right before the LAAutoshow for me to checkout. It’s legit CF, none of that fake laid or look stuff. Obviously light and I like that it keeps the form factor of the 6 (unlike my current Spigen Case) – the weave is excellent and when a phone is this large, it’s really shows it off well.



On CF accessories like this I often see issues around the cutouts, but as you can see by the pics – not an issue with this case. I also like that it’s a “full” case, I see a lot of half CF cases and hybrids but I prefer the complete deal.


If you need a carbon fiber case – this is the one to get. Check it out here.



I haven’t updated here in quite some time and I’m shocked that I’m still getting hits, but I appreciate it! I’ve been doing most of my work over at drivingline.com (You’ll find all Cars & Coffee stuff there, albeit limited) but figured I’d toss some of my more personal stuff here.

Pic below is me shooting an R8 (the irony!) at the Ring back in March…note the “Chase” lego sticker we placed…hope it’s still there when we go back!


Pshop my buddy Phil did of Chase at the Ring with his new Lambo LP670-4 battery toy…


BMW ///M4 we caught at the Ring back in March.


An old shot of the garage at our condo…circa 2002?  Wife’s Audi A4 missing…

Current shot of the garage…def need to clean up a bit.

I can’t remember if I posted this or not…but it’s me on the Ring!
