    Right people been having some problem with closing my passenger door ever since the wind blew it wide open, when it shuts it closes lower then jolts up... Is there anyway I can fix this or do I have to go to Audi?

    Thanks

    Can't remember how the doors mount on the 8P on my old 8L 3 Door the door dropped like that, sorted at a body shop by them effectively bending the door hinges back into alignment using the door as a lever, looked brutal but there is no adjustment as far as I am aware.

    Yeap, take to bodyshop to look at hinges or the hinge fix point on the side of the door, as may have bent/deformed that area when the wind caught it.
