    That's rather difficult to say without seeing a scan from the car. R8s have been around since 2008 now, with a current ones being a fully new second generation and quite a few changes during the first.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Not sure that using DRL only is a good idea.

    You do understand that "coming home" and "leaving home" lighting is not applicable while the car is being driven, right?

    ^^^hmm....... perhaps more of a "tweak" topic than "General VW/Audi Repair" - maybe?

    Since the OP is not Verified, he would not be able to post in his own thread if I moved it to the Tweaks section. So I think the New User section would be the most appropriate place; moving this there.

    I'm not 100% sure yet, but I have a sneaking suspicion where this is headed....
