    Thanks, going to take it back today and ask them to do the above, hopefully this sorts it for me too

    Cleaning and sealing is a must is water doesn't bead on the roof. I used autoglym the first time I did it, did the job but I've been told 303 cleaner/sealer is a much better product, so I'd recommend that.

    If you actually read the A4 cab handbook it says some water ingress is normal...
