Had the car since new(S3), jan 2008, std engine, just ran out of warranty last month , i have now noticed that the clutch is starting to slip. this is probably the icing on the cake as i have had numerous faults with the car since new. My local dealer doesnt give me any faith, so i am stuck, do i shell out for a new one Or see if i can grind them down about how **** their clutches are? this is on top of elec window problems, creaking doors/seals, badly locating drivers seat runner, replaced with a new subframe, then taken back out after i kept finding foam on the carpet under the seat,then some foam was removed from a section of the seat to stop this, then they gave it back with the plastic side trim broken, then back in again to get this replaced,then they decided not to put it back together properly & leave the rear seat trim hanging loose, then back again to try & find the place where the foam was falling out from which they had previously fixed, then a knocking came from the front suspension, they then had it back to find the problem( after a 28 mile road test!), they informed me that it is the front shock so they will replace that & the ball joint & top mount. they replaced the front shock only to find that my steering rack was knackered. apart from all of this & the **** paint that scratches if you look at it, i f**king luv my car!!!!!!
