    Before you all have a go, yes i know its very bad for me!

    Right, whenever I have a cig in the car and its rainning, loads and loads of water comes in. Every car I have driven in the past is fine with having it open slightly so its not just me.

    Any ideas on some type of wind deflector?

    Please no comments like "quit then"

    Cheers

    i think its just part n parcel of a3's

    i get it every time, im just waiting for either the window and wing mirror controls to stop working or mould to start in the door cards :puke2:

    Its just a bad design on audi's behalf unfortunately, does my head in too!!!

    Best advice I can give you is to quit :p

    I have never seen wind deflectors on an A3 but I am sure they are available but IMO it would look tacky with it on.

    Quick search on google showed me these:

    I remember paying £35 for ones for my clio years ago.

    I have a set of BNIB wind/rain deflectors for sale for the 3dr 8P if interested & they're very slim & not like these pony ones that looks like tupperware bowls, tested & they do the trick with minimal impact on visuals, tbh they dont look hideous at all.

    Wind deflectors are kind of Marmite I find. Some hate them and others swear by them! Must be smokers that appreciate it more!?

    NHN - PM me when you are free please. :sorry:

    I bought wind deflectors as soon as i realised this problem with the A3

    Makes a good bit of difference!!! Defo worth the money

    A lot on eBay as well mate, i recommend the "Heko" ones

    Would look better with the front windows tinted slightly to match the deflectors

    People often tell me i've left my window open :laugh:

    With all those hairs you're pulling out atm with cars, I'd say you look older than me, which to be fair isnt hard as I look young & spritely (when I look into a circus mirror)
