    Unfortunatly i dont think they're going to entertain you mate, audi are a bit touchy about reclaims.

    But good luck, and let us know what happens.

    My wifes 2000 X reg 52000 miles had exact same thing, I noticed it 1 week after I bought it and took it to Audi Leicester in the summer. They said they would sort it under warranty no problem.
    Anyway they took photos and sent them off to Audi warranty department and it was rejected as they said it had been there too long:(
    I appealed the decision and it still got rejected so I had to fork out £210 to get it done! Not happy, it has put me off buying another Audi.

    Eventually got an email from Audi UK yesterday followed by a phone call from the local dealership about 2hrs later to book my car in to have the work done as a gesture of goodwill!! Bearing in mind i'd already had it rejected twice I did not hold up much hope of anything being done but persistance has paid off!!

    My thanks to bantam1 for starting this topic.
