Description

Speed humps, petrol stations and steep drives mean the R8 is calling out for AirRide. This bolt-on kit fits the Audi R8, maintains the awesome handling and ride quality and at the same time allows customers to lift the vehicle to clear obstacles and avoid incurring tens of thousands of pounds of damage – to front and rear bumpers and splitters and side skirts. In the long term this kit could work out free!

The mechanical suspension on the corners is 100% bolt-on, with no fabrication needed whatsoever, and any garage should be able to fit it. It’s so simple you may even be able to fit it yourself! This kit is a bolt-on conversion, so your car will be in the garage for as little time as possible.

We appreciate that space on the R8 is at a premium which is why the kit includes the computer and solenoids in one small block that can be fitted in numerous places with just a single line for the wired controller (it can also be controlled with a phone app). Our kits also include either our standard computer controller or the slightly larger two-part deluxe model.

With the control system, you are able to totally adjust the ride height of your R8 at will and while driving, with a good range of lift and drop (varies from vehicle to vehicle) at the touch of a button from inside the vehicle or outside.

Also included is a Viair 444C air compressor or equivalent. The Viair 444C has a 100% duty cycle and a PSI of up to 200 (you can’t get better!) This means you can run your air suspension as much as you want at high pressures. The 444C is compact too which is a real benefit on any super car. The system can be specified without a tank if packaging is an issue, although it will take longer for the car to lift without one.

Here’s exactly what you get in your kit:

  • Two front R8 performance air struts
  • Two rear R8 performance air struts
  • Four air bags, one for each corner (built into struts)
  • Viair 444C compressor or equivalent
  • Necessary brackets, bolts and fittings to install the system
  • A computerised air control system from our standard or deluxe range

If your system needs are not met or if you have questions please don’t hesitate to email or call us on 08007720315.

Fitment

Although this kit is specifically for the R8 (2006 onwards), we may also be able to supply it for other Audi sports cars. Either way, we can provide air suspension for most cars. Please feel free to call us on 0800 772 0315 or email us to discuss options for your R8 or other Audi.

One of the main features of AirRide Gold is that they are bolt-on kits. This means that your local garage should be able to fit the kit without much difficulty. Alternatively, give us a call (0800 772 0315) and we can arrange the installation on your behalf. We are also happy to talk you or your garage through the installation process.

Warranty

AirRide Sales Limited offers a warranty on AirRide products for a period of two years from time of purchase. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and subject to registration at the time of fitting. If you fail to register then a one-year warranty is offered.

If the kit does not appear to fit – STOP and call us, as a vehicle misidentification may have occurred. Kits will be accepted for return and exchange only if they are undamaged. The buyer must cover the return postage.
