Audi have mixed my wheels up! Rr is suppose to be fl, fl is really rl, rl is rr. They got one of them right!

Not hard for them to label them up before!!! Idiots

When you say 'Audi' have mixed up your wheels, which 'Audi' are we talking about - Audi Brussels SA who made your car, the German parent company Audi AG based in Ingolstadt or one of the private company's in the UK that trade as Audi dealers. It would mean a lot more if you gave the name of the dealers rather than just 'Audi'.

The fact I've been around on this forum for yonks is a clue! :p

Also if the car is new (I.e. From Brussels) how do you manage to mix up wheels then smart arse? Lol

Also why would Ingolstadt be involved with the a1?

Anyway was Dealer.

Isn't it recommended to rotate wheels to even out wear :roll:

Sorry, in the vein of this thread "rotate" might have been the wrong choice of word,.......alternate relative wheel placement ;)

True but they left one unrotated!

I'm avoiding that so I only have to replace the front ones eventually

I tend to do the same. On my A3s one set of rear tyres last as long as two sets of fronts.

Exactly so hence if I'd not noticed this mix up I'd be replacing 3 tyres instead of 2!

Dealer got back apprantly it was a subcontractor that did the paint work on my rusting callipers, hence they put the wheels on wrong

Didn't get any freebies as a sorry :-(
