The car always gets a clean by Audi pre delivery anyway. I'm sure they know how to wash cars

I'm more worried about getting door dents whilst my car is with them

Agree, I've seen them with my own eyes. They like to use stuff with 'fillers' in like lifeshine so you dont see the swirls until after a few washes....

mines just been recalled for software update, will be 5th time back in 3 months! Worried about having the car cleaned now though as last time it came back with two chips on the boot rim!

If a dealer chips/dents anything they have to repair it. The manager doesn't want to look you in the eye after you've complained, but at the same time they should be looking after the cars!

Mine went in tonight for the updates tomorrow, 3 I think, plus hopefully sort out the terrible noise of the back wind screen wiper.

Got a nice A5 coupe until mine is ready.

Depends on the campaign, most of them dont have to contact the customer directly. Audi do a check on the vehicle to look for any outstanding campaigns/updates when you take your car in to them for any reason (be it a service or warranty repair), then you get them done at the same visit

Recall is bit of a strong term isn't it???
