    Thumbs up UK: New R8 Owners Group on Facebook

    Dear UK-based Audi R8 Owners,

    Following the creation of the Audi R8 Owners Club Facebook page by Chris (which has its roots firmly in this forum) a new Facebook group for UK-based R8 owners will soon be launched.

    Unaffiliated to Audi (i.e. we're doing this off our own back!), its hoped the group will provide UK-based owners with a secure online platform to engage with other owners on all matters regarding the R8. Proof of ownership will be required to join.

    The group is being configured with the aim of launching new week however in the meantime, we welcome any comments or feedback.

    Cheers!

    Will proof of ex-ownership be allowed?

    As the title suggests this is for UK-based R8 owners only. It's to try and get some of the social side going with events, meets etc. It's not to replace anything already in place.

    As such it's never going to satisfy everyone's interest in R8's but it is what it is. If it's of no interest to anyone, it'll fall on its arse

    Re: UK: New R8 Owners Group on Facebook

    Hi - I’m based in the UK and currently on the hunt for a 2013 Facelift R8 - I wasn’t aware of any (UK) specific forums / pages so this would be great.

    Is there any other pages/forum links for (UK) that anyone knows of. Trying to build a list of things to look out for when buying.

    Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers

    In a word, no. This was the primary reason for establishing the FB page initially.

    Ah I see sorry - I’m a complete newbie to all of this and finding my feet.

    Still trying to navigate this forum for a comprehensive guide before I purchase one.

    No need for apologies - we were all new at some point.

    I'm not aware of a single 'buyer's guide', but there is plenty of advice on here as to what to look out for.

    Good luck with your search.

    To clarify what we're talking about on Facebook:

    - Audi R8 UK Owners & Enthusiasts Page - originally setup so anyone can "like" the page and contribute

    - Audi R8 UK Owners Club - private group for owners only to be released next week

    Lots of articles out there on what to look out for but most common are:

    - Oil leaking on the mag ride (£1k per corner to replace)
    - AC unit blows only warm air (£3k-£5k engine out job on v8)
    - Get a PPI

    If you Google "Audi R8 buyers guides" you'll find a few as well as a load of advice on here
