Convertible top squeaked and made some noise. Was diagnosed as a bad convertible top control module and also poor seating of the convertible in the rear when top up. Repaired. rattles from windows, lubed trim solved problem
Convertible top originally replaced (2012) due to excess noise. Replaced poorly and recently started to come loose. Replaced again! Yes this car has had 3 new tops on it.
Certain bass frequencies in the rear subwoofers while playing music cause the back package shelf to rattle. Audi dealer tested speakers instead, misunderstanding problem. Mgr reported it correctly, tech messed up.
Creaky sunroof in cold temperatures. They lubed the seals, and replaced a piece of loose trim.
Paint blistering on surface of front wing wheelarch flange. clearly an inherent manufacturing quality control issue. required paintwork repair. concern is ability to arrest corrosion and avoid recurrence.
Corrosion on boot repaired under paint warranty. This issue first appeared in first year of ownership and required to be repaired again. Issue is associated with poor quality control during factory build (joint between 2 bootlid sections)
