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?

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 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.

Gyeon prep removes it completely and it does not return? If yes I’ll be buying some. <br/>

Feels annoying we are having to rectify Audi’s errors something I’ve never done in previous Audi’s. <br/>

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

I use a Sonax rubber care stick. It covers it for about a day or two max
