Not an uncommon problem on Audi vehicles. Most common reason given by Audi is corrosion due to lack of use or salt used by councils to prevent ice and not a manufacturing defect or a quality issue with materials used. This of course is nonsense as most owners will know brake discs should be good for several years of service under normal operating conditions.

If I find my brake discs are pitted after 2 years and only 10,000 I think I will remove them and the merchanic at Audi will be wearing them over his head, sounds utter nonsense to me get a second opinion and if that is right demand new ones it’s hardley a consumable item.

They are the rears, the front were OK, so fed up with the car I traded it for a Q2.

I have a November 66 Q2 TSi and I have covered 22,000 miles. Before the car had covered 20,000 both my rear discs had become corroded across half their width. Two local Audi dealerships claimed it was ‘fair wear and tear’ which is clearly ludicrous. Talking up the issue Audi UK has so far proved utterly pointless. The reply to my correspondence merely trotted out the same explanation and their reply was both rude and arrogant, basically implying that I should go away and not waste their time. I am in the process of arranging an independent automotive engineer to undertake a complete strip down of the rear pads, calliper and discs to which I have offered Audi an opportunity to attend. If their report indicates there is a fundamental fault with the brakes or the materials used I intend to invite Audi again to replace the faulty parts at their expense.

Good luck with trying to get Audi to contribute to your brake disc replacement. Have a look at other forums like the Q3 one you will quickly see that this is an issue across the VW/Audi franchise.

I had badly corroding discs on my previous A1. I took it to my local independent garage and they installed some other brand at an incredibly low price and they were better than the Audi ones.
