Hi Guys,
Recently bought a second hand R8 and the guy who sold it to me didn’t really know all too much about it. When I got the car keys it has this fob attached to it, but I have no idea what it does. Anyone know what it is?

I have never programmed the valves on my exhaust (too lazy) so I just have them closed in town and open when out of town.

I have responded to the OP's other post and copied and pasted the explanation from the Capristo manual.

Still haven't programmed mine Trev, even with all the instructions you gave me, just plain lazy. Anyway it's nearly 10 o'clock here on a very sunny day so time to drive and not write :cool:

It's still programmed from the factory. You only need to program it if you want to change when the exhaust valves open. I definitely would if I were you! I did mine and I love it.
