Audi Vehicle PR Numbers

When looking up a vehicle on an OEM service information website, it is important to know as much about the vehicle as possible. Knowing what features or systems come equipped on a particular vehicle will help with the blueprinting and repair process.

On the Audi service site, they provide detailed information on just that. They provide a digital "build sheet" that shows not only what equipment is on the vehicle, but in some cases what is not. Audi uses what they call PR-Numbers to identify features and equipment on a vehicle.

To access the PR information, you must have a subscription to the Audi pay service site. Since this is specific information, the only way to access it is to provide a VIN. To view the VIN specific PR-Numbers:

  1. Log in to the service site
  2. Click on Service Information (top of webpage)
  3. Click on the Vehicle Identification tab (middle of webpage)
  4. Enter a VIN in the empty box (middle of webpage)
  5. Click Search (middle of webpage)
  6. Click on the Vehicle Data tab (middle of webpage)
  7. Scroll down to the PR-Numbers area

Here will be the list of the PR-Numbers along with a description of the associated number. On a 2018 Audi Q3, for example, the PR-number 7X8 indicates the vehicle has a park assist system that includes a rear view camera. Number QR8 indicates the vehicle does not have traffic sign recognition.

These numbers are not limited to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and can include other items such as brakes, suspension, and trim. For example, PR-Number 1KU is listed as: "RS rear steel brakes with gloss red brake calipers."

Knowing what systems and features a vehicle came with, and how to locate this information, will help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
