Audi r8 v10 plus
Recently we bloggers were invited to Audi R8 V10 plus launch with proceeding Garage Party within few days. Though I couldn’t make it up to the premier launch of this New Beast Machine but I am sure it was worth to my time. Nevermind, I went for the Garage party which was certainly a new experience that I have added to my long list of new experiences, those grooving cars and technicality are just way away from my reach, but none the less the beauty and rage of these car’s are something to fall for.
To make aura look more like a garage party the folks from Audi made me wear an overall from Audi itself, which indeed turned out as a safe guard for my clothes which I was wearing underneath. The manager took us for a round in the garage. I managed to sit on the top of the new car with biting teeth haha! I scared him to death when he saw me sitting on the bonnet, but I got my shot anyway.
The Technical point of this newly launched car is worth a read.
We Bloggers experienced at Direct Reception:
- How to measure Tyre depth through special gauge
- How to measure thickness of Brake Pads
- Checkup of all fluids Levels and leakage
- Performance of Wipers, Climate control, all lights etc
- Overview of the car when we put it on Lift.
- General checkups.
Audi Delhi West has a separate engine room so that the engine and gearbox can be tested and repaired carefully in a dust free environment without any disturbance. In the workshop, we experienced the Break efficiency tester in which suspension & Breaks were checked. In this tester, we will check the suspension and brakes forces on both sides of an axle, which in turns provides driving stability and efficiency during braking.
In Audi service center they have a special exhaust system consisting of two motors which suck the polluted air to maintain an Eco-Friendly environment in the workshop. In spare Part division, there are racks with shelf / location numbers which is directly connected to the computer systems so the workers can know the details. For example-
what is the inventory, where is a particular part located, how many parts to be ordered etc?
Prepick area This area helps in prepicking of all the parts for the service to avoid delays and to save the time of customers as well as the technician. For each and every model / vehicle, painting of body parts takes place in a Special room which is called Paint Booth, it is equipped with a burner for baking the surface of the vehicle after performing the paint job.After painting the vehicle, the car is kept in the paint booth to make the paint dry for at least 45 minutes to settle down the paint for long lasting shine on the surface. Car o Tronics – For major damage cars, there is a special straightening bench for the body/chassis alignment to regain the car in its original shape by the robotic process.
The entire process was explained in a step by step manner and the tour ended with a small quiz.
