    haha,sory forgot i had capslock on:keule:

    yerh coolant levels are spot on,screen wash is ok aswell,it was only serviced at audi just last week so everything under the bonet seems to be topped up just fine,like i say im just hoping its from the rain running from top of car to under the car but iv never noticed it before to be honest,its definatly water and no kind of fluid or anything like that,just got me a bit worried thats all wondering what it could be?

    yerh i just thought it could be that cos my mates audi drips from the aircon,and he says thats due to condensation aswell,il keep my eye on it and hopefully it will end up just been rain water or condensation like you say,i suppose if it dosnt rain again for a while and it stops dripping, then i know it will prob be just rain water.cheers mate:beerchug:
