Hey guys,

My car is currently at the Audi dealership for regular servicing.
I've mostly enjoyed the bulky gear shifting on my R8, but do wish that it was a little smoother at times. I read here on the forum that many have gone for the software upgrade/reflash which has changed their lives.

So, I asked the dealership for the software upgrade, and they came back saying:
"there is a software upgrade available but it matches with new clutch pack, your car has the old clutch pack, if we upgrade the software it might damage it."

My question is - does this make sense? I always thought the Rtronic was never upgraded by Audi, and I was not aware there are 2 variants of the clutch as the message from Audi claims.

Any information here is helpful. I would really like to go through with the software upgrade, but not if it can damage the clutch.

I cannot answer your question from a tech standpoint. But, there is definitely a difference between the rtronic in my 11 V10 and my 08 V8. The 11 is much quicker. So, there very well may be a difference.

Thanks spitfun. When you say "I also put one on my car" do you mean the update from Audi, or the tune from UltimatePD?
