Hi Guys, has anyone had this done, and please review including recommending a specialist. Any drawbacks like clutch or gearbix issues ?..MRC have no options for me.

Yes
Totally ruined the car, although that was combined with a ceramic clutch, so unsure if related

But honestly I wouldnt bother

R-tronic is <beep>, polishing a turd won't help, just spend your money on Super Unleaded and enjoy.

I know this is an old thread but looking at an old R8 with the R tronic box. I’ve seen various forum threads and most say go S tronic which I totally understand having owned several Audi cars with S tronic but price wise the old cars are looking tempting for a bit of fun😁 Any more advise from others with R tronic would be much appreciated 👍
