    Are you still getting knocking noises from the front of your car. If they had your wheels off check if your wheel nuts are done up ASAP, i know it sounds obvious but i thought i had a dodgey CV joint until i noticed 2 of my wheel bolts were lose! cheap fix but worth the check.

    I gave up with Wolverhampton Audi and took it to Tamworth Audi, I have had a lot more time from them, they have taken photo's and sent them off so I'm waiting to hear from them now

    Hopefully the roof rails get sorted through Tamworth Audi and they do a decent job. If they decline it then get onto Audi UK.

    Wolverhampton Audi sound like they've enjoyed taking your hard cash, i'd get your car checked over by an independant VW/Audi specialist to make sure all the jobs have been carried out properly. If faults are found with the jobs they have done then i'd get in touch with Audi UK and let them know what's happened

    I took mine to 2 dealers and even an independant guy and they all said the same thing as above. i Just left it in the end..

    Tamworth Audi have accepted that the roofrails are covered under the warranty so therefore Audi should pay 100% to repair it, don't let them take more money off you lol

    There saying they will do it as a good will gesture as I dont have full Audi service history, I am not sure what to do, if I refused and they said no to 100% id be gutted, so I dont know weather to just go for it as it saves a lot of problems in the future, there also doing the boot lid.

    The whole full service history crap is ********. They only say that because the know that all the overpriced labour charges spent on the car has gone to Audi and basically can afford to sort it with no problems.

    I agree with Sandip 100% - don't let them take money off you considering the paint issue is Audi''s fault anyway. I know they won't touch my car because I have removed the roof rails and fitted new ones in matt black.

    I wouldnt settle for that a all mate, 100% all the way, thats unacceptable tbh.

    Get it in writing the offer on the table now, then challenge it.
