    My originla bird doo doos post has dissapeared unfortunately so i'm having to start a new thread

    I was one of the people mention in the artcicle this month - this came about as I sent an email to the watchdog at autoexpress - they contacted me for extra detail but then replied saying they had spoken to audi and they said this this this and this - not that helpful as its the generally official shpiel audi tell everyone i think. So basically although there is some bad publicity there - it hasn't actually helped me in any way although at least i tried and i didn't just role over like a dog like audi expect most people to do - hence they get away with it. I suspect it would have been looked into deeper had more people complained about the same issue - but as you can see only 3 or 4 people have been in touch.

  4. A slight tangent, but has anyone experienced any rust spots on their paint? I have a couple on the rear wheel arch, which appears to be some kind of fiberglass panel. I assume it is something in the metallic paint...

  6. Indeed... that's why it is presumably something in the paint surface. It certainly looks like rust. I suppose I need to take it for a respray, but I was a bit curious if anyone else had a similar problem...
