    Good luck Dan, i'm currently fighting audi to cover it under warranty as i'm not willing to pay their 70/30 split for something that is stated in the warranty. Sucks that yours was badly repaired :(

    So which is the best Audi garage to approach to get a result?
    Is it worth the hassle?

    I'm in a fight with audi over corrosion to my two front wings, and a roof gutter.... Usual 70/30 on the roof, point blank refused the wings as they say the bumper has been off and damaged arches. Nonsense! They're refusing but have gave me the number for 'motor codes' Has anybody any experience of dealing with them?

    TIME TO WARRANTY CLAIM FROM FIRST NOTICING IT;
    Took it to audi for assessment after having read of problem and associated claims on forum
    HOW LONG YOU HAD OWNED THE VEHICLE AT THIS TIME;
    2 years
    DEALER APPROACHED;
    Audi Cambridge (Vindis)
    OUTCOME (APPROVED, ) Offered a 70% contribution, so as with others we will pay £300+ towards warranty work..The car has not had any repairs, was thoroughly checked over by the bodywork guy with paint meter - who has been very helpful - they say they will also include the boot bit in the work.
    DATE OF CLAIM
    ; Around 22/1/15

    In some respects a bit miffed that the 70/30 applies but the car is almost 12 years old and the problem was not raised earlier so can accept their stance.
