    Well, i'm still not happy w/ my car. she's a 2011 2.0 TfSI quattro, and for a while the back end has seemed very spongy. I thought it was a tyre issue, as one kept losing pressure, so eventually over the course of month i got new tyres and then got refurbed alloys [which were the cure]. She still wasn't right. In April, i took her in and there was a leaky shocker on the rear nearside, after that she seemed good, she definitely handled far better, but now she's back to spongy and possibly worse than before.

    Took her in for a check the other week, as i'd also had the parking brake warning come on [and then go off a day later, never to return...yet...] so i got them to check the suspension. And they found....nothing. I had a chat w/ the head tech and went out w/ him for a spin, he thought there was nothing beyond my steering wheel being a bit off and suggesting a wheel alignment.

    So...any thoughts? I'm 1000% positive SOMETHING isn't right, she definitely has little grip in the back now, tyres all have >6mm on them [Mich PS4s] but if a dealership can't find an excuse for me to hoy money at them, i'm beginning to doubt my sanity! :-D
