Hey everyone, planning on doing my oil change on my 2012 V10 within the next 2 weeks. I have the oil and filter ordered already. I was wondering if anyone has the correct part numbers for the replacement washers and drain plugs. Also the quantity of each needed. Thank you!

Flags don't display correctly on my browser but looks like you are from the US, so this should be correct:

Audi R8 (2007 - 2012) - sealing flange. oil sump. crankcase. > VAG ETKA Online >

But click around and find the correct model, part numbers are listed below.
This video might help you a bit. Was useful for me at least.
I usually use mobil1 europe formula it is ok to use.
There are for sure five plugs to drain ..just take your time.
But first drain the 2 plugs right under the sump pump and then the rear flange
at the transmission connection.
Then do oil reservoir which holds oil when you fill it’s a larger bolt.
And then do oil cooler in front of left rear wheel.
Then with i believe 32 mm socket do oil filter.
The oil filter is a pain to pull out of the plastic piece
but take your time and u will get it.
Then place filter element back on top of engine make sure it falls into the correct little hole.
Also don’t forget to change o ring on plastic piece while you have it out.
Put plastic piece back on top of element and proceed to tighten.
Fill 7 quarts….start engine 30 seconds…stop engine wait 2 minute add 1.3 quarts…
good luck
