I thought you had an A8. I have never replaced the bulb in an R8 before. But I know in the A8 the headlamp assembly needs to be removed. But I would assume it is likely the same.

This answer does not help me. A8 and R8 are two different cars.

I understand. I am unsure of the R8. My service info is not very helpful with that. I will open this up to other Audi experts that may be more familiar with your car. Thanks.
