Right folks............i suppose most of us own an Audi because we assume they are the best model/make on the road.

Having owned one for 6months now im begining to notice little niggles etc i think could be better. Here's some of mine

Rattling Glovebox

Brake Calipers (poor finish)

Poor Audiable alarm system

just a few for now...................its not a "lets rip Audi to peices" thread just a few things i thought could need improving

Any more??

The cost of parts when it goes wrong..

The cost of Audi's bloody labour (I go to a Specialist now)

The stupid Intake Manifold Fault on most 2.0 TDI which Audi didn't cover me for as i don't service my car from them anymore!

I cant believe no-one has mentioned it yet, but I HATE the fact I can't open my window when its raining without getting the whole of the inside of my car soaked.

How hard would that have been to fix? Really?

Not to do with the Car but part of owning it & I wouldn't say Hate, more like dislike... the snobby Main Dealers, had to go there the other day to get a new intake hose as I had a Boost leak, went straight from work in my filthy clothes and the looks I got from the Brut wearing Salesmen, bit too up them selves for my liking, completely different from the experiences I had when dealing with VW...

i'll agree with that, they make you feel like you need to dress up just to go in them.

the weak sounding audible alarm on the reversing sensor, virtually have to turn the radio off to hear them
