    Aluminium Body shell?

    I remember reading somewhere that A4's have an aluminium bodyshell but I am not sure if this is correct or is it just galvanised? Anyone know the truth? Also I notice the new A3 is only partially galvanised, is this correct and why would they do this?
    Cheers

    LOL! Excuse the randomness

    You won't have any corrosion problems if you buy a well looked after car, they just don't rot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    A8's have a full aluminium space-frame, and the A2 is also aluminium.

    I should imagine the new A3 is partly galvanised as there is no need for such treatment on the upper body. Saves cost and production times [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Everybody say "yeah we got the funk"
