    This time really bad rattles in pasenger and drivers door, showed the Audi tech guy and he was quite shocked, said it sounded like the door panels were not fitted back to the doors, I said to him the build quality of Audi these days is *****, and he agreed!

    Also radio reception is shocking, so doing that as well. Lets see how they get on this time!

    Got an A5 Covertable in White, its shocking, also people will think I'm a Hairdresser!! Its like driving a sluggish tank after the S3 lol, so glad I dont have the diss-pleasure of owning one!:Flush:

    Cheers

    Its been in 4 times now since 1st Sept

    In fareness though every time it goes in it comes out a bit more like it SHOULD have been built.

    All door rattles creaks gone now, its like been in a new car!! Ooh forgot, it IS a new car!!

    Going back in next week though, the radio signal problem is down to a new rear windscreen needed, so they have ordered that today.

    I'm just going to make a monthly block booking I think??

    Think its the luck of the draw with most cars N8, I have had some that have been solid, but every VAG car I have had has had **** build quality, I know they are only small things, but that thing of mine has had nearly every panel off and refitted now, and the seats out and re-fitted, Surely thats not right.

    Its fine now, but can guarantee something will go wrong with it within the month, I mean, I am quite anal about small rattles and stuff, but It is a £38K car at the end of the day, so should be 100% right, some live with stuff like that, but I can't unfortunately.
