I’m confused. I’ve been told that you are supposed to connect the negative clamp to the metal ground piece, not to the negative terminal on the battery. I’m going to be texting out my new CTEK in a few days here so can somebody correct me if that is wrong?

^ The Audi SA that I spoke with (who spoke with the foreman who is an R8 "master technician") said to connect the negative clip to the ground bar, not the battery. Also, the owners manual says the same thing.

Your car is a 2010, mine is 2022, obviously something must have changed in the ensuing 12 years? I'm no expert, but I just don't want to damage my battery

Well, just tested out my new CTEK. In prying out that front battery panel I think it did loosen the carpet on one side by a bit, but whatever. Not sure why they designed it that way.

The weather still will allow for a few more drives, but gotta plan for winter storage pretty soon here :(
