    After owning A3's for over 5 years you would think that i would have learned not to open the window after a rain shower when i leave the works carpark for home!! Turn left out of the carpark and two soakings in two days. Love my car but that annoys me more then anything else!!

    Bad design or the onset of Alzheimers? :blink:

    Happens all the time and is a very bad design, I thought it was my roof rails holding water or something but obviously not.
