Sounds like he bought (presumably not Audi approved) a tuned R8 unbeknowst to him now no gearbox warranty.

Surely, they would of advised him how much a new gearbox was and that his car was not covered by the Audi warranty BEFORE they fitted it? Who tunes a NA V10 anyway, especially the gearbox?

Hi

The question is, was a repair order issued or did the workshop act on its own ?
