    Im not too sure where i stand with this so i thought i would ask you chaps first.

    In 2010 both my partner and i bought new A3's hers arrived in June and mine in September. Since then we have had numerous mechanical issues, but what i have recently noticed is lacquer runs on the bonnet and etched paint to a severity that the lacquer is cracking off.

    In addition i know stone chips are from general wear and tear but the bottom of my front bumper directly in the middle below the grill (The bit that appears silver on an S3) has paint literally peeling off....

    Im not going to ask if this is normal because obviously it is not, But is this something Audi would and should fix or are they going to tell me to do one ?

    I will get some pictures up asap

    You get 3 years paint warranty with Audi I believe... Take it in for them to look at and sort.
