Hi All,

I am doing some research into purchasing a Gen 1 R8 V8 (probably 2008/9). One Mod I really want to do is change the side blades to the V10 side blades. I spoke with Audi directly yesterday and they quoted about £3,000! Too much if you ask me. I can see a few on Ebay but the options are very limited which has surprised me a little. Does anyone have any recommendations on where is best to go for this part in the UK other than Ebay/Audi?

Thanks.
Jasper

Hi and welcome to the forum.
You could message R8-Stuff (a trader on here) as he is usually very competitive on price. A much cheaper alternative would be to have them wrapped. If fitting V10 side blades to a V8 you will also need the grills as they are larger.

Thank you Trev! You know I asked a few people on Ebay about these grills also, but they said they would already be installed, but like you say, the V10 blades have a larger flare to them so it makes sense that a new grill would be needed. I'll reach out to R8-Stuff.
