    Guys, I have recently bought an 8P '54 3.2. I have noticed some bubbles which will eventually break through.

    A patch at the top of each front arch and the leading front edge of the sills.

    Has anyone had dealings with Audi regarding this? Is it within their corrosion warranty?

    They will check it's never been repaired. So if non Gen wing, been painted or filled, then no.

    They will use a gauge which will measure the paint thickness.

    And as said, stone chips etc no, anything which has impaired the finish.
