The OTTO NUSSBAUM GmbH & Co KG is not to be held liable for any incidents that may occur when following the instructions given in this video. Always follow the equipment specification made available by the vehicle manufacturer. The usual safety measures must be observed at any time during lifting and lowering.

Special features of the vehicle: The Audi R8 is a low clearance vehicle. The pick-up points are positioned towards the center.
Our recommendation: For the Audi R8, as for all other low riding sports car, we recommend to use very low profile arms. Always check the maximal carrying capacity of these arms.

1. For optimal door opening and ideal weight distribution, always drive in the car dead center between the columns.
2. Place the car so that the left and right rear-view mirrors are aligned with the column.
3. Lower the pick-up pads to the lowest position and place the carrying arms to reach the pick-up points under the vehicles.
4. Roll up the pick-up pads so that they touch the vehicle. That will give you more stability.
5. Lift the vehicle up, stop once. Now check the gearing and that all arms kept their correct position under the car.
6. Lift the vehicle to the desired height.
