I think this might turn out rather bad, just have a bad feeling, but hopefully i get proved wrong!
Today I took the A3 in, its an 02 reg, for the common bubbled under the paint on the roof.
On my car the paintwork has bubbled only on the driver side, towards the rear, and outside the gutter trim.
A local painter suggested and quoted to paint the rear quarter, as the damage is not on the inside of the trim to the roof panal.
Audi offered 70% goodwill, and quoted for a roof repair, not to paint the quarter.
I cannot see how they will blend the paint to factory finish without painting the rear quarter, but they insist sections of the roof only will be painted.
So as the price was similar, and the local guy wouldnt put a garentee on the rust not returning (when i took to audi for inspection there was no cracked paint, now there is), I left it with Audi this morning. They promised a free courtesy car, I specificly asked for a desel and they said thats fine.
Today I was told the a5 cab im driving home is a desel.
I got home and was pretty sure modern desels didnt drive this way and sure enough found it was an s line tfsi PETROL!
Phones Audi, waits two hours and no call back so call again to be told 'ive never booked that car out before (3k miles on it) so thought it was desel, most of our fleet is petrol though we wouldnt have promised you a desel!
Now I need to wait for a desel to come back in on time today/tomorow and swap them over. I have 4-500 miles to cover this week, if I'd known this id have hired a car local for the week!
On a plus note the sun is out and im sorely tempted to go play with the roof. Or vagcom... probably shouldnt do the later.
Lets hope the drama ends here!
