Re: Nissan paint... SUCKS VW/AUDI interiors.

Had an 03 Jetta before, and i do agree with the paint on the plastic trims, they peel off after a few years, not that mine did, but a lot of the other guys VW on Vortex had issues with it.

No some AllRoads have those 2 piece wheels. But its all aluminum not a chrome clad style.

everything you are saying is entirely wrong.. unfortunately you cant even compare an audi to any american car.. They are top of the line cars just like bmw or mercedes, if anything and im sure most of you would agree their new line of cars might even be better then some beamers.. My dad has gone through 9 of them and is on his fully loaded 4.2 q7 now, he had an all road a6, a8, my mom has an a4 convertible now stock and its stilll has a nicer interior then most jeeps. There isnt very much plastic at all in any audi and i have never seen it flake..

Re: Nissan paint... SUCKS VW/AUDI interiors.

the 1 thing that sucks A$$ about audi/VW and the difference between them and BMW+Mercedes is that they break down ALOT!!! my buddy works for porsche and works on VW and AUDI's as well at his job. he said NEVER EVER EVER buy an AUDI/VW out of warranty or without a warranty!!!

yes, I helped a guy with a jetta change his tire using just the in car supplies, and I can say the jack was hopelessly complicated and and most if not all the plastics that weren't wraped in leather had cheap peeling paint on the doors, shifter, and handbrake.

of corse we torqued the wheels after wards, and the center caps for the rims almost broke when we tried to pry them off with the tool provided in the trunk just for the job.

OK buddy, you need to get off you i suck AUDIs dick soap box and realize that they are not god. I know what the **** i am talking about, i have detailed enough of these things to see how they wear and how they are made. The cloth seats and teh carpets in these things are pure garbage if you get a good stain in them. The stains never lift out no matter how much you steam and extract them. The carpets never let all the sand and dirt and dog har go. I have done enough of these things to know. VWs and Audis are the same ****ing car with a different name and a few different options.

You may have had 9 of them but i bet you treated them like the gold you made them out to be. Go do your self a favor and find a used audi that some teenager drove and tell me its not worn like i said.

What are you a sales rep for Audi or sumtin? geese.

Re: Nissan paint... SUCKS VW/AUDI interiors.

clearly im not gonna mistreat the cars i own?? and clearly im gonna take care of it, i think that's a given when you drop close to 70k for a car... I take care of my jeep just as well and it doesnt look as nice as my 60.000 mile... What cloth seats are you talking about "buddy" I've never seen an audi with cloth seats before

Re: Nissan paint... SUCKS VW/AUDI interiors.

First of all i am not talking about the 70k audis, ive been talking about A4, A6, Jettas and passats.

I have said this repeatedly, On the VW cloth seats and on the VW and the AUDI carpet it is very hard to get them to come completely clean. I am not talking about well off people who drive 70k audis. I am talking about used Audi A4s and A6s and VW Jettas and Passats that come in to detail shops all the time. Most are owned by young adults/kids whos mommy and daddy bought them for them for their 16th b day and they have never taken care of them.

On almost every older A4, A6, passat and jetta i have detailed the grab handle on the door is peeling like it has a thin rubbery clear coat on it and the VW cloth seats are near impossible to get clean and the Audi and the VW carpet just plain sucks to get any type of mashed in stain or sand out of. No matter how many times you extract the carpet or steam it the sand just keeps coming up.

Re: Nissan paint... SUCKS VW/AUDI interiors.

Yep, the grab handles on these cars do begin to disintegrate VERY quickly. I cleaned one with just 35k and it was pretty bad - serious design flaw!

Cloth seats in a Jetta/Passat are a major PITA! They are fur ball central, I spent about 45 minutes cleaning a Jetta with cloth seats as apposed to about 15-20 on a normal car with both with just light dust.

Leather seats are a god send, but there are loads of these cars about with cloth seats (at least over here anyway).

Previous model Ford Focus had one horrible carpet too and I hate them, its like a cheap trunk carpet through out and everything gets stuck in the fibres.

So I agree with you completely Kyle.
