I dont want to say to much right now as i want to give AUDI The chance to kiss my arse and keep me from telling the story and posting the photos of what has happened to my R8 today/Tonight !
As one of the first to own the r8 in the uk i`m telling you this is not a every day sports car and Audi do NOT have in place the recovery IF somthing goes wrong. Alot of you will be horrifed by what i have been through today and tonight.

It should be under warranty - unless the first owner did some very bad things.

I am glad I am further down the list though.

The F430 doesn't look nearly as good and is very LOUD inside the cabin when driving.........

I do second Zymval's point; this happens to EVERY manufacturer. In the past, Lambo and Ferrari have had very unreliable vehicles.

And Aston Martin, with their battery drain problem..........

Give them a good bollocking, get it fixed, drive the car a little longer.

This will either soothe ruffled feathers, or you will end up selling it.

not usual for an Audi tho'

particularly as a lot of the mechanicals from the R8 are tried and tested from RS4 etc.

other membes of this forum who have received their cars have not reported problems so hopefully this is a one-off

Tell me more about "special recovery" please !

What did special recovery do ? Presume you had a puncture ?

I have spoken to Mike many times. He is in the "R8 team" dealing with customer service, deliveries as well as technical issues. He is indeed extremely helpful.

Thanks.
