I am building up a file of cases that have been authorised for repair under warranty and would be grateful for any details.

Please include:

*********************************************
I hope that with a number of claims for similar body parts that have been successfully repaired we will have more luck getting future claims dealt with.
Please put in as much detail as possible.

Thanks

Good idea! I'm sure that would be of great benefit to subsequent claimants!

I just hope that people who have previously claimed can be bothered posting...

I took mine to Teesside Audi and they said it wasnt covered under warranty as the bubbling was due to 'Zinc Intrusion'. Are they trying to pull a fast one on me?:motz:

Yes, definitely trying to pull a fast one...

AFAIK, it IS Zinc that is the problem but it was introduced in the factory painting process which Audi are well aware of, that is why so many cars have been repaired by them...
