    wheel alignment woes!

    right fellas help and info need.
    my car is a A3 2.0t quattro
    my problem is my rear tyres are wearing the outside edges
    i had full 4 wheel alignment done in September when i had my new tyres put on.
    i went back this morning for them to check it over after noticing the wear at the weekend.
    they did this and the results were still spot on not moved much at all hardly anything nothing to cause the problem.
    they guy that did the check was very very helpful indeed but was unwilling to change the settings from the stock figures that his machine tells him to set it to in case he made it worse.
    yes they had put the vehicle details in correct no mix up on suspension height it was spot on.

    so does any one know if Audi have released revised settings to cure this problem???
    wanna get this sorted ASAP
    cheers ant

    oh and i ain't paying no audi dealership 250+vat to do it!!!

    check the toe as it may be too much and causing the tyre to 'scrub'

    stock def
    only aftermarket mod is a bluefin map
    it's even still has the sport alloys on
    i had ps2's on the car when i bought it these wore evenly
    when i changed for the ps3's i had the wheel alignment done one adjustment was made to the passenger rear wheel that was all but i now have this problem but the fronts are running true
    really is annoying saw a thread from America where an Audi tech said use the rear settings from a mk5 golf what do you guys think about this idea?
