Car-care tips for your Audi sports car

You buy a sports car for its sensational power and sleek design. And while you want to keep it looking as good as new, its glossy paint is not what makes it fun to drive -- and especially not what keeps drivers safe.


Audi sports car care is different than routine maintenance for more conventional vehicles. High-performance cars, by definition, prioritize optimum performance. This means that their V8 or V10 powertrains are not only unique, but you're also probably putting a lot more stress on your car's mechanical components based on your lead-footed driving habits.


Here are a few sports car care tips for keeping your racetrack-ready ride in the fast lane and off of the sidelines:

  • With great power comes great responsibility -- meaning that if you're driving fast, you need an exceptional braking system that can bring your sports car to a standstill at a moment's notice. Before you head out on a drive, check your car's brakes. If anything feels off, you should have a professional correct the problem before you put the brakes to the test in the fast lane.
  • Follow the suggested maintenance schedule as outlined in the owner's manual. Regular fluid changes are crucial to your vehicle's health. Even something as seemingly simple as an oil change ensures that all of the engine's moving parts stay properly lubricated and prevent your car from overheating.
  • Ensure power steering fluid, engine coolant, brake fluid, etc. are always at capacity. Top off low fluids before you head out on a road trip.
  • If you frequently put the pedal to the metal, any potential problems can quickly spin out of control. If you notice leaking fluids, hard starts, or long braking distances, be sure to have a professional technician inspect your vehicle as soon as possible.
  • Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, advanced ASF® multi-material construction, a high-revving V10 engine with FSI® dual-injection, Audi MMI® touch infotainment -- these are extraordinarily unique components, and they're features that can only be properly serviced by a factory-trained Audi technician. Ensure your technician is always Audi-certified by taking your car in for service to a Certified Audi Service Center, like the one here at Audi West Covina.
  • Protective sealants and coverings help the paint, leather, vinyl, etc. withstand the test of time and Mother Nature.
  • Using high-quality, OEM products to take care of the interior and exterior of your car ensures that your hard work and attentiveness will pay off. These seemingly small details, like using factory parts, protect your Audi's superior construction, guaranteeing your vehicle will live a longer, healthier life.
