Audi R8 Oil Change

Regular oil changes for sports cars are very important because of the abuse the engines are subjected to. If you take your car to the 1/4 mile drag racing or road course racing, an oil change is recommended afterward, regardless of how many km are left on the old one!

Special attention should be paid to the drivetrain with oil changes and servicing every 45,000 Km and shorter intervals if the R8 is taken at the race track. Of course, there are racing fluids recommended and available as an option, at Eurotekk.

Audi R8 Brake Service

Of paramount importance for a sports car are good functioning brakes. Because of the tremendous braking force, they need to be maintained properly. At Eurotekk we offer premium replacement brakes for the R8. It is also recommended that the brakes to be serviced when the vehicle is driven with hard braking applied and then glazing is formed on the brake rotors – which will reduce the brakes’ stopping performance; A symptom of that is when the driver has to brake harder than used to be. Glazing is forming due to brake pads emitted gases that stick to the hot brake rotors which then form a thin darker layer that is more slippery than a clean brake rotor – hence the necessity of harder needed braking. As a general rule, brake service is associated with a brake flush, as hot brakes tend to generate bubbles in the brake fluid – as some might experience a mushy brake pedal feel.

Audi R8 Engine Decarbonizing

Another service we offer is a full engine decarbonizing. Carbon deposits are present in the engine with mileage as low as 33,000Km. If you feel that your R8 has become somewhat sluggish and does not perform at its optimal parameters, it is a sign that carbon deposits are present in the engine. The airflow engineered “pattern” is disturbed when carbon starts to accumulate on the intake valves; that is what starts to diminish the engine performance, especially when the camshaft lobe starts to open the valve – the carbon buildup gives a similar outcome as there would be from an engine that has a less performant camshaft set installed.

Carbon deposits are a common issue of all the gasoline direct-injected systems on all makes and models, and they cannot be prevented, usually (unless a custom system is installed). As a measure to delay as much as possible the formation of carbon deposits it is recommended that the car is taken out for long drives, and properly warmed up to operating temperatures before every trip.

Audi R8 Battery Maintenance

It is highly recommended for the R8 (and any car for that matter) that is being stored for longer periods to be regularly started every week where possible, or at least every 2-3 weeks when a shorter time frame is not achievable. Ideally, the R8 needs to be left running for at least 30’ with reaching operating temperature. This ensures that the engine retains oil on its components and will not start “dry” after (sometimes 6 months) storage – which could result in cylinder/piston scoring due to lack of oil presence.

Battery maintenance during this time is also highly recommended, as a low voltage or dead battery can “manufacture” fault codes – because the modules are designed to work with proper voltage.

Audi R8 Performance Tuning

The Audi R8 has an astonishing potential for tuning both versions V8 and V10, up to or over 1,200 hp, depending on the upgrades.

At Eurotekk we offer different tuning options from 850 hp to 1,200 hp or more, based on boost added to the normally aspirated R8 engines (both the V8 and V10 versions). Boost aid will take your R8 to incredible levels of performance and enjoyment. Along with performance, our R8 clients receive custom maintenance and advice based on stock cars or specific power platform builds.
