You got the paint on the roof sorted yet?

Was speaking to the warranty guy from Audi Cambridge the other day and he told me this is common due to Audi forgetting to put sufficient sealer on the roof before painting!!

I havent had a chance to get over to a dealership yet.. im going to head over in the new year when i have my first week off from work.

One thing thats been on my mind about the whole thing is that will the job be done as well and taken as much time to do as if i had booked it in at bodyshop? Or will it be a case of 'right lets bang this one through its just a warranty job' Hope that aint how it is as i'd like it to be done pucker.

They have to repair it to as good (well better) as it would leave the factory. Only agree to accept the car once you inspect the repair and are thoroughly happy with it

I would it's your car so unless your 100% happy with the work just refuse it plus don't sign any paperwork for warranty stuff till it's all done. The dealers need your signature to be able to make a claim from Audi

Yeah they have been that colour for a while now, It doesn't show from a distance but this cold weather hasn't done the laminex stuff much good Audi S3 - Page 3 Icon_eek its all bubbling up/peeling Audi S3 - Page 3 Icon_rolleyes I think its mainly because the fogs are convex? is that the word Audi S3 - Page 3 Icon_lol well they are domed anyway so was a right pain to get it to stick in the first place. Ill wait till it falls off by its self then re do them Audi S3 - Page 3 Lol

Had a bit of time to kill today so as the weather was decent gave the old girl a polish. Scrubbed up alright and managed to get rid of a few bad swirl marks in the paint.. i dont think i put them there Audi S3 - Page 3 Icon_eek pretty sure it was quite swirly paintwork when i got it.

Have stampers old wheels on at the moment. Still sitting whack as ever but i dont really mind for the time being Audi S3 - Page 3 Icon_lol will get some coilovers one of these days Audi S3 - Page 3 460227

This front wing was worst looks alright now though..
