Does My 2009 Audi R8 Have a Cracked Frame?

audi r8 frame crack

If you haven’t heard, some of the early model Audi R8’s had an issue where the actual frame of the car would crack around the front strut/suspension area. Well, I happen to own a 2009 Audi R8 V8 with a Stasis Supercharger and a host of other modifications. After watching a few videos on Youtube showing this actual issue, the thought came to me that I had never physically looked at my frame!

Well, time for that to change! Overall, the process is not difficult. There are a few plastic panels that you have to remove, beyond that, it’s fairly seemless. The only tools, or “tool” you’ll need is a flat head screw driver. Keep in mind, the plastic piece closest to the windshield does need to be removed if you want a clear view of the frame,  however it isn’t necessary. If you do want to remove that plastic piece, you’ll need to pull the windshield wiper arms which will require a puller.
