I’m not sure if this complies with the rules of this forum, but I would just like to say a big Public ” Thank You ” to Ricky Elder .

Very briefly, some weeks ago I asked Ricky to supply and fit a switchable Capristo exhaust to my R8 V10.

His quote was the most competitive by a long way.

Between the dates the system was ordered and delivered , I was called into Hospital here in Plymouth in the WestCountry for heart surgery .

Whilst in Hospital the exhaust system was delivered to Ricky.

As some will know he is based in Swindon a fair distance from Plymouth.

I was eventually discharged from Hospital and after resting up for a week Ricky asked if it would be easier for me to bring the V10 to Bristol for fitment of the exhaust system as opposed to the trek to Swindon.

I naturally agreed as it represented a very much shorter journey for me.

Anyway last Saturday I presented myself and the car at a company called ” Ramp It Up ” in Bristol where Ricky had hired a ramp for the day at no extra cost to me.

It took 6 hours to fit the system.

Rickys knowledge and expertise with R8’s is second to none . He even lent me his own car to wander around Bristol whilst he was carrying out the work.

To say I am delighted with the exhaust is an understatement .

Ricky is without doubt a gentleman and went the extra mile just to help me out.

It’s rare to encounter such good service these days.

Very professional , I can thoroughly recommend him.
