    LSN Auto Detailing - 2011 Audi R8 V10 - Maintenance Refresher

    I never get tired of this car. Client came to me for regular maintenance a few times, then we did a full correction with CQUK3.0 & DLUX six months ago, now he's back on maintenance again. And now that I have my Sony a6000 digital mirrorless camera, I'm having a blast with that as well!

    This is a drivers car and drive it he does. He does about 60 miles a day as his daily commuter, so it sees just about everything AZ can throw at it. His motto is to NOT let it sit in a garage, and he stated, now that he has me to look after it every six months, he feels even better driving it.

    And drive it he did, since six months ago the car was peppered with water-spots, engine bay was dirty and disgusting and the wheels were caked with brake dust and gunk... Interior looked like it was driven pretty good too. As usual he was thrilled when he picked it up and we look forward to seein him in six months. Enjoy and thank you for viewing!

    Wow Beautiful work! I almost thought it was a gated 6 Speed manual. But it's a DCT. Either way it rocks!

    Awesome car! And nice it's a drivers car too.

    Does the customer do any maintance in between your 6months maintance?
    And how has the coating holding up?

    Great work and write up and pictures!

    Thanks Kamakaz, I think when it's time to move on from Mustang(s)... The R8 is definitely a contender. It's a auto PDK with amazingly short fast shifts..

    Thank you Tony! He does nothing in between the 6 month intervals. The CQUK held up nicely... Water just blew off the car. DLUX held up really well on the wheels, same thing... Water just whisked right off.

    Hi Mike, no smoking this in car! For some reason Porsche & Audi leave big open gaps in the lower grill to cool the radiators and intercoolers. Sadly everything the road collects in those areas... It's really an eye soar when you look at the front of these beautiful cars, then see at the bottom of the IC or Radiator every piece of trash and debris from the road. Even more difficult is getting it out of those areas. I had to use an extend-wand on my Metro Vac & blow to get all the junk out.

    Thanks Paul... If someone took both stangs and left the R8, I wouldn't be disappointed.

    This car you could go on-and-on about. All wheel drive, with 525 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and top speed of 195 mph. It has to be the cheapest and funnest entry level super car of all time. To get that kind of performance you'd have to move up to Ferrari. The sound is amazing. I'm not sure if there is aftermarket exhaust or not... but you can hear it a mile a way. The PDK is crazy fast and just a rev of the motor sent un-burned fuel to the pipes along with some nice loud pops. So I don't get to dive it obviously, but I do have to move it around... Some how I deployed the rear spoiler, I think I probably because I hit the button, but I'd like to think it was from the little rev I gave it... hehehehe...

    Thanks! I'm never tired of getting this car in the shop. I told the owner, it's actually mine and I'm just letting him drive it...

    Meh, so it’s a nice blue German 2 door. I want to see more pictures of that sweet 5 door Honda

    That is an awesome R8, awesome that the car keeps coming back. Excellent work.
