    hello fkr i had the same problem i was parked on a slope in a heavy downpour and my roof leaked on the front drivers side at the top of the a pillar theres a rubber seal down the a pillar with a hole forming a drain channel to the base of the pillar i just slowly and carefully poked a long piece of stiff wire down the hole to clear a blockage.i then cleaned and reproofed the whole roof using a cabriolet cleaner by autoglym no problems since hope this helps

    Cleaning and sealing is a must is water doesn't bead on the roof. I used autoglym the first time I did it, did the job but I've been told 303 cleaner/sealer is a much better product, so I'd recommend that.

    If you actually read the A4 cab handbook it says some water ingress is normal...
