My Mrs has an 2008 2.0T A3 S-line bought from Audi back in July. Been absolutely spot on until friday when the plastic trim on the drivers side door handle fell off somewhere. Anyway although it didnt effect the opening of the door it looked pretty rubbish so she phoned Audi to ask for a replacement. As its classed as bodywork its not under covered by the warranty and she nearly fell of her chair when the said £140. Its a bit of plastic 4 inches by 1 inch ffs!
Then on friday night the boot open flashed on the DIS even though it wasnt. Reclosed it and it stopped flashing so thought nothing of it. Over the weekend there was no issues until the same thing happened twice on monday morning. When she got home last night after an hour or so of being home the alarm started to beep. Went out and re-armed it, all fixed, until 10pm, 12.30am and 2.30am!!!!!
Was getting very grumpy now so we had no option but to leave the car unlocked till this morning
Anyway she went to the dealer to get the door handle fixed and asked them if they could have a look at the boot aswell which luckily they could. Found out the washer pipe had corroded leaking fluid onto the sensor making it think it was unlocked therefore tripping the alarm. They said as not parts were broken the warranty didnt cover it so that'll be £350 please!!!
Needless to say the wife is v grumpy that shes had to shell out £500 this morning lol. Oh and what with the £517 spent on 4 new tyres ordered on sunday, its been an expensive 2 days!
