    Ive never used or seen the work from these guys, i just know they have a state of the art bodyshop (if im thinking of the right place) so there is absolutely no excuse for a crap job.
    But unfortunately the trade is absolutely hammered with cowboys...

    Thanks for the replies guys... Appreciate it...craigcull Got a prob with bottom of my passenger door.. Bubbling, possibly due to some cowboy repair and needs sorting before winter sets in. However, I'm thinking of a colour change next year so will be in touch!

    Gutted... Just been to a detailer who measured the paint thickness... I bought the car 2010 from wearside audi I knew the car was painted on the passenger side AFTER i picked it up.. He suspects there maybe filler in the rear quarter ... Door has started corroding the whole of the bottom edge.. Booked into paint shop but this is likely to on going right if its started to corrode?

    To be fair, the car should still be under warranty for corrosion. 13 years corrosion warranty from audi and 5 year corrosion warranty from any vag approved repairer. If wearside repaired it, then i would take it back to them. But yes your right, once the corrosion starts you'll have a job holding it off. Unless its just minor surface corrosion unfortunately. But also its not unusual for cars to be painted from new as some come damaged from the transporter.
