They all splash water on the back seat when you open the rear doors when the car is wet. Keep a towel inside and wipe it off.

And the ****** front seat! I tend now and again (if it's not lashing it down) to blow along the top of the door to get rid of any standing water before opening the door.

Happens to mine every time, it’s a ‘quirk’ of the car I’m afraid.:flushed:

Yes, feature of the car.
I have never had a car where the cills get as dirty as this. And dumping water on the seat is irritating - and a cross we have to bear I’m afraid.

As others have said, it’s a feature of the car. It did it in my 3dr too, although nowhere as bad as my new Sportback does it

yes I suppose you have to expect things like this on a premium £30k vehicle or should you?

Did you take your car back to the dealer for them to take a look at this? What did they say or do?

I have got exactly the same on my 3 door A3... When it rains outside and open the door usually some water drops from the sills.. Not giving it much importance but for a premium car i think design ways should have been rectified.. oh well
