    Audi paintwork/corrosion warranty

    How long is the Audi anti corrosion warranty?
    My 2006 Avant has slight bubbling appearing on the front arches.
    MK5 VW Golf has 12 Years-is Audi the same?

    10 years when I had some work done on my A3, they will do paint depth tests to see if its original paint. if it has been repaired at some point then they will not fit the bill for repair work.

    Thanks
    Yes I am aware of them checking the paint with a depth gauge to ascertain if its original.

    13 years corrosion warranty on vw audi seat and skoda. Aslong as there is no outside influence e,g a chip thats bare metal resulting in corrosion. they usually authorise repair pending the paint depth being correct as above.

    Thinking about it, my A3 was a 2000 car and I went to Audi with it in 2012, so its definitely over 10 years old and they authorized my work too .
