You still need to inform audi of the prob. I've noticed it on mine now after 2 weeks on the rear bumper. Nowhere else on car yet. But I will be informing them if it next week. At the end of the day it could be a potential recall prob if it's bumpers as they painted elsewhere. No clay bar will be going on my new paint work for a while. That's what we all have warranty for.

I've bought a clay bar kit and am going to see if I can remove them myself. I will post details if successful
Mine are in the middle of the rear bumper where tailgate shuts so brake dust up there I don't think that's the issue here tim said:Been on the Fiat 500 forum and looks like it is a common problem,seems like the cause is iron particles from brakes that settle and rust on the surface looks like a clay bar should sort it.
I spent ages polishing my car today and sent time on them and didn't budgeLady_SadlyBroke said:I've got them again on my second A1. But last time, they were pale yellow spots and were right in the paintwork. This time, they are a deeper gold, more flecked - and they polish off quite easily.
Maybe worth looking at.
