    Why me?

    Right ordered a new cab s line in my. got it end of june. everything seemed fine until i had a look at these forums. First off they missed out the two leds above the gearbox on my interior light pack, secondly i opted for the s-line spec, but having been looking at other s line cabs they given me the wrong front grill. I've got the one off the se/sport. With the plastic going across. On the s-line its in squares!!! not impressed with audi at all. i mean how are you going to try and sell a product without the main bits.

    The car's been a pain so far, steering wheel rubbing, going in on sat, speaker rattles at low volume, right rear quarter is leaking air at motorway speeds and also rattling at low speeds. i mean this is not something you expect from a 30,000 plus car. Audi pride themselves on build quality, I'm not impressed!! Sorry for the rant and posting in the wrong forum but the a4 forum is quite dead compared to this one.

    Because you're in the wrong forum and I guess most people don't know much about cabrios!

    Some of us have had no problems at all with their audis so at least they do some things right.

    Don't believe everything you read, but you should have checked the spec on the car prior to accepting it? normally no problems with what you ordered, all the VAG cars I have had have been what was ordered.

    Have to say I'm a bit shock to hear this. Not that I don't believe you, but this is quite a big mistake they have done to your specs! Assuming that you bought this new ... have you seriously considering to reject the car?

    **EDIT
    Sorry just read your original post again ... you've had it since June, it's a bit late now to reject now .... What have Audi done so far to cover their mistakes?

    I'd reject the car immediately on the basis that, if they can't be trusted to get basic, visible bits like the grille right for the spec, how many other, hidden bits are there wrong that you don't yet know about? Whole car could be a hotch potch of different spec parts.

    All Cabs should have the two LED's regardless of whether they have Interior light pack or not? And also you should've specified the S-line Exterior Pack when purchasing the car; an additional £750.00

    Erk, you're right, never spotted that!

    Tis a bit confusing though as the brochure says this additional pack comprises different bumpers and "exterior badging" yet the standard S-Line pack already has "exterior badging" so what's the difference?

    No difference, the only difference is the price; if you have exterior and interior s-line, since they have some common badges, the exterior pack cost slightly cheaper than if you get exterior pack alone without s-line interior.
