    Rust bubbling through??

    Ok so i purchased a 2002 1.9TDI SE A4 for my second car there about two weeks ago

    75K on the clock and Full Service History

    After a good detailing session the other day i've found the paint bubbling in spots across the doors and in one corner of one of the doors.
    Is this a common problem, the car is only 8 years old and i thought they were galvanised and had corrosion warranty for 12years?
    The reason i bought the car is because i have an old school mini and i'm sconered to the teeth looking at rust, i certainly am not expecting it from an audi. I am selling a mk4 golf in the same year with near perfect paint.

    Got it on mine, on the inner turn of the wheel archs.

    Those wheel arch liners, much like a carpet are culprit. They hold moisture for days and just beat on the paint/metal over time causing rust. Saying that I have noticed a little bubble on the rear tailgate aswell

    I've got some on the top of my nearside wing, I thought it was probably a pattern wing but maybe not.
