2008 Audi R8 Long Term Road Test

2008 Audi R8: No Auxiliary Input for You

July 06, 2008


When choosing a car from our fleet to take on a long road trip, one of the things we usually factor in is does it have an auxiliary input or a way to connect an iPod/MP3 for road trip tuneage.

Surprisingly, the 2008 Audi R8, the car of Iron Man -- every technogeek's superhero -- doesn't come equipped with an aux input. Even our 2007 Nissan Versa had one. But our Audi only has two SD card slots. And who uses those?

Instead we had to resort to using an FM transmitter to hook our iPod up to the stereo...and change the station every time it gets static-y, which will probably happen a lot during this long trip.
