    2009 Audi R8 V8 Magnetic ride question

    How do I know if my car has that. I just purchased a used 2009 and just came across this. Don't they all have it? Please advise how can I tell on my car.

    There'll be a button on your centre console right below the shift lever that allows you to change the setting of the Magnetic Ride system...if you have it. It's the button on the far left, and has a symbol of a shock absorber imprinted on it.

    I think all the 09s had it. On the 08, it was an option. Welcome and enjoy the car.

    it was mentioned as a "std." feature from the intro on US cars; it would be interesting to know if in fact there IS a US spec car out there w/o it
