Only had my S3 four months from new and it's developing rattles... not what I expect from an Audi at all. Rattles in both doors, another from under the gear shift knob and a horrendous creaking from the boot that seems be comming from the fibre glass floor vibrating on the metal screw that holds floor pull in place. I've dropped off the car with my nearest Audi dealer to have all that sorted and the only thing that cheered me up was the S5 they have leant me while they fix my car. Mind you, they initially tried to fob me off that there was little wrong with the car and rattles were a result of heat differences, causing plastics and metal to expand and contract. Well. I never knew that! So after a bit of moaning, they have agreed to sort it all out. Oh and I just got a call to say they need to re-allign the bonnet as it's not been put on properly! I'm beginning to wonder if my car has a Renault badge hidden away on it somewhere! Anyone else less than impressed by the (cough) build quality of their A3 (8P)? I'd also be interested if anyone else has had the same problem I have described with the boot floor and a terrible creaking noise every time they lift off or go over a bump.
