    Anyone noticed this on their car? I've reported it to Audi but they request hi-res images now. Basically it'll be another battle with them. I wondered if anyone had been down this route and what the outcome was.
    Their paint finish is pretty poor, they obviously have no tolerances as their DFT readings are ludicrous.

    My old nemesis orange peel, i had a foray into orange peel correction not so long ago, but i hit the f**k this for a lark limit very quickly, at one point I was sure I was going to correct the orange peel on my wife's Golf, until i tried it on a scrap panel, and realised what a chore it would be to do an entire car...

    every single car i have looked at recently has had some degree of orange peel, seems to be worse on BMW's, and with Audi/VW it seems to be more prevalent on the vertical panels.
