    It's finally back, icy cold AC 🥶. Took the mechanic, 3 solid days. Can confirm the original compressor was just a Denso after all.
  2. R8 V8 Coolant Expansion Tank Leak

    Maintenance and Service
    Mine cracked a year ago, produced a sweet scent. Limped it to the dealer with a cloud of white smoke from the engine bay but kept an eye on the engine temp and lost about a litre of coolant. Recorded the drip at the time.

    Thanks for the pic, yep the coolant tank previously cracked and was replaced. The coolant residue dripped onto the generator and most parts of the engine bay. The coolant scent had a sweet scent.

    Yeah my bad, that was the wrong close up. The air condition compressor is a bit further up. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

  7. Audi R8 v10 A/C Compressor part number?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi Everyone, Just wondering if anyone knows the part number for an A/C Compressor for a R8 v10 Spyder or the Denso OEM equivalent that's compatible.

    It's been a while, since I last posted. Trouble free motoring. 😌 Found a new mechanic who used to work for Audi at 1/5 of the price and time. 🥳 Got the oil replaced, transmission fluid topped up, engine coolant and replaced the pollen filter which was so cheap it was unbelievable.

    Definitely but the others aren't on the forum, created a facebook group with all the local R8 owners I know. https://www.facebook.com/groups/299977134242475/
  10. R8 GT #294/333 in Azzurro California

    General Discussion
    ooh nice, congrats on the new car. I've only seen a similar colour, in a matte version at the Tokyo Motor show, 9 years ago. Quite rare indeed, haven't seen this colour on the road.
  11. 2014 R8 Speakers, How Many In the Car?

    General Discussion
    The speaker trim should have 'Bang & Olufsen' written on them, I've reuploaded the speaker location pic and added 2 new photos from B&O regarding the sound system.

    Not quite, the 2013/2014 v10 plus had facelift side mirrors but the gt had milled alluminum pods. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  13. GT v LMX review

    General Discussion
    I was surprised he chose the GT, after he banged on about, how bad the R-tronic & materials was at the beginning of the video. The GT Spyder tested wasn't the most equipped one either, so wasn't fair to comment on the materials. Overall, quite a good review of the two cars. He also forgot to...

    Thanks :) The old rattle can job was too dark, the new paint pops a lot more against the black wheels.
  16. Puddle lights Rings or Quattro?

    General Discussion
    There's apparently a new one available, I went with the rings but kind of want these when my old set burns out.
  17. Audi R8 V10 Flooded and Rebuilt!

    Picture / Media Posts
    Nice, you finally got it repaired. Saw the vids before of it getting flooded with the C63, thought it was a goner. Did Hi-Tech fix it? Maybe, I'll see it on the road one day ;)
  18. Carbon Fiber Side Blade from Aliexpress?

    General Discussion
    Haven't bought a side blade but other carbon parts before from JSKracing, quality is quite good but not the same, when you compare it side by side with OEM or other reputable brands. Fitment isn't 100%, it was always a few mm off and felt heavier, like a carbon overlay and not fully carbon...
