    Had his on a Z4 the wife had previously but never any of our Audi’s.
    The surface is still smooth to the touch and the clouding / ghosting is under the surface.
    Not caused by kerbing at all.
    Car is 2 years old and still under warranty.
    But before I take it to dealership, was wondering if anyone else has had this issue or if it’s a known defect? F3D9C972-D4B3-4E14-92A5-B50069288969.jpeg 19AC1D48-4D21-4561-BBF1-662C10D4A78C.jpeg BE9B9CE0-8853-4F58-BE6C-D8F540949AEA.jpeg BB0047D9-B571-498F-B22D-834E93964E2C.jpeg

    The white worm - I remember wife’s Z4 also, had it really bad. Haven’t actually come across this on the Audi’s - hope you get it sorted

    Audi will probably say it's down to a stone chip or the likes, I remember Lexus having major problems with Alloy wheels, they had to replace hundreds of them on warranty as the laquer couldn't withstand the salt used on our roads.
    Hope you get it sorted.

    No mate. It’s not on the surface though.

    That’s the thing yeah. I’ll likely look for the wheel to be replaced under warranty like we had with the Z4 back then

    Cheers mate. I’d argue against them on that front as the surface hasn’t been broken, still smooth as new.
