    Got the exact same problem on my 2000 S3, same location, just creeping along the roof rails. Its being repaired under warranty once they bother to get around to booking me in, they already agreed its a warranty job.

    Yeah, I had that on my 1999 A3. I think it only spread VERY slowly - I saw barely any change over about a year. I have since sold the car.
