Moaning New GT owner.....Usual problems....

Hi there all you lucky people.

Went shopping for an Audi A3 and came back with a GT...

All the usual faults.

Boot rattles like bloody hell

Tailgate latch broken on collection, fixed now.

Fog light failure driving me insane, fixed it myself after two failed visits to the dealer.

Whoever fitted the BOSE system was a butcher, just spent all afternoon fixing all the broken bits and replacing all the missing fixings.

Same bloke must have fitted the reversing sensors as he forgot to bolt the rear bumper back on properly.

SMASHING CAR, love driving it, can't wait to get to the bottom of all the build issues.

Cheers.
Mark

Re: New GT owner.....Usual problems....

Welcome to the forum...your niggling problems are par for the course it seems...mine dosen't rattle at all but I've had a couple of electrical gremlins fixed...Brilliant otherwise (unless you want to press on that is...brake fade and untidy handling lurk beneath that gorgeous exterior..

Yep, thats why I don't have an AUDI on the drive.

I love cars, my significant other is a COBRA.

Every petrol head should own an ALFA once in their life........
