    Hi, I've got a new A4 Avant S-Line on order and would like to check something with any B8 facelift owners. I was driving behind a new S-Line Avant yesterday and noticed a hole in the rear bumper, rectangle in shape, about a foot wide below the diffuser. I've then gone on line and looked at all facelift models on the Audi used search and all of the S-Line's I can find with rear photo shots have the same hole. It looks like a panel has dropped off the car. Anyone else got this? Is it suppose to be like this, if so any ideas why? Looks a bit ****.

    Cheers, Richard

    Surely for a towbar? Can't say I've seen any with big holes in the bumper otherwise.

    Not sure have a look at the pic below. Could be but why would they leave off the blanking plate from every new Audi I can find a picture of on the net. Could it be airflow?

    I've never noticed that either, it does look a bit unfinished.
