    Same here... My 1 month old Audi S3 has suffered stone damage to the condenser. Clearly a design fault. I'm going to reject my car as not fit for purpose unless they repair it and install a stone guard. I don't need an £800 bill every couple of months!!

    Will use the reference number above so thanks for that J

    Have a look at the front bumper grill - is there a big area where a stone could get through? There is on my S3. My car is a month old and already the air con condenser has a stone through it so the air con isn't working.

    You meaning where the fog lights would otherwise go? Would have cost Audi all of about £2 to fit a mesh in there.

    No, she means in the big, iconic open mouth grille which Audi are famous for.

    Hmm just started anew post... scared my issue could be the same as everyone here, only few months old. Definitely a bad design, will use your Ref Jet_andy. Fingers crossed.
