You make an interesting point, which would give the rest of us hope the issue would resolve itself, however my poor Q2 will never in its lifetime have as many washes as yours already has had!

In regards to my other post, Audi are now coming to me to take photos of the seals (probably next week now) and will make a decision from there....

Clearly they have admitted the problem exists. Please let us know if the new seals are problem free. I'm still deciding what to do.

well took car to audi and they didnt replace them but just cleaned them . still didnt fix problem . so more calls and then hey presto booked in to change them . but sadly have to report they are just the same if not worse than before . sending more photos in to head office audi for it to be looked at again.

I have had my car coming up 1 month now and have not experienced this at all.

I did however strip off all contaminants from the car using Gyeon Prep which is an alcohol based oil and grease remover at purchase then applied layers of Zaino to protect.

I declined to have mine replaced some weeks ago because I asked if the replacement would be like for like and was told yes. I then said am I likely to have the same problem and dealership said yes. So couldn't see the point of undergoing the work because until Audi accept there's a manufacturing/composition problem it won't be solved. I just use the vinyl cleaner after my car has been washed. Does improve it a bit but hardly the point when you buy a premium brand vehicle!

For those who are suffering from this I recommend degreasing the rubbers as I did this and have had none of the issues you all seem to be having. Can has only been washed about 3 times in 2 months so its not because I wash regularly.

I used Gyeon Prep to degrease them (and the whole car) prior to the paint being sealed up with Zaino.

Had my seals changed about a month ago now and they do actually seem better! However Kryton hasn't been cleaned since I'm ashamed to say so when I (not actually me) eventually get round to getting him cleaned I'll report back!

I have just purchased a 3 month old Q2 and found the seals all mottled on the next day. I have read all the posts relating to this problem but do not see a resolution to this. How is this problem resolved?

Gyeon Prep is a fantastic product.

It is an alcohol based product with added degreasing properties.

Go easy with it as it will strip wax, oils etc so apply to a microfibre and wipe the seals unless you want to strip any product you may have on your car to re apply.

I've just ordered the product below as another member indicated it removed the issue, I've tried Autoglym rubber car, but the marks came back.

Gyeon prep removes it completely and it does not return? If yes I'll be buying some.

Feels annoying we are having to rectify Audi's errors something I've never done in previous Audi's.

Too much costing by Audi has gone into this car seriously. They should be held accountable!
