Safe drive at night on Audi R8 is possible with working head light only. When time passes, 12 V voltage lamps may be less effective in R8. Actually, cars with 5.2 motors produced by Audi sometimes need bulb change in headlights. You should keep up with Audi’s recommendation to put into vehicle headlights only 35 W capacity bulbs. The recommended type is D1S and cap also should have the base PK32d-2. The best decision is to purchase for Audi R8 4.2 efficient up-to-date bulbs of reliable producers. Producer used in 2011 year of production quite effective bulbs for vehicles with CMPA motor number.
Installing PK32d-2 lamp by yourself can be hard for 2013 R8 owners. The obvious thing is that other cap than D1S won’t suit Audi’s headlight module in 2011 model year. Note that you may choose real power more than 35 W, providing the voltage stays at 12 V. Don’t try to take headlight in R8 to pieces – holder in 4.2 motor cars is easily relieved.
Observe all recommendations and your 2008 Audi R8 will serve with no problems. If you replace bulbs in R8 with engine 5.2 by yourself, take care. Output power in 35 W and voltage feature of 12 V – this is wonderful choice. It’s easily bad idea for 2013 Audi owners to buy other than D1S type bulbs with base different from PK32d-2.
