    Hi all does anyone else have this problem with their 8l a3. Basically when i open the boot when its been raining the water on the roof and boot empties itself inside the car :banghead:. Its done it since i had it and i can only put it down to a design fault as nothing seems to be wrong but if anyones got a fix then that would be great as my sons pram is in the boot most of the time and i cant really be putting up with it getting soaked.

    I sort of get that but when i drive off the water pours off to the sides when turning. I found out the hard way when i turned left with the window open :mad:. If yours doesnt leak in the boot then the seals on mine must be bad il have to take another look.
