    Thats looks ****e Garry...have they bust the bust clips underneath at all trying to fit it?

    Not had any issues with trim, had a noisey passenger door card but gave it a wack the other day and it hasn't rattled since...

    Ah what a bummer, none of my trims rub, have a few rattles but loath to take it in as the above happens....and then something else gets "torpedoed" along the way...

    Yeah a wack in the right place works....

    Exactly the same issue on mine with that piece of trim...



    I have also noticed a couple of other defects today that I'm annoyed about - parts of the matt alu trim on the front splitter is tarnishing and there's a blemish in the paint on the rear spoiler...

    Oh no mate thats not good. Let us know what they say.
    Audi UK have no record of any quality related issues with the RS3!! Yeah right. We should all contact them on same day.
    This is my second set of plastics which have failed the same. Design issue will not be solved by replacing the same parts over and over. Cry....
