If it's just a few drops after having the hose on it, I wouldn't worry. Every convertible I've ever owned has done this. Add long as it's dry inside when it's raining, you're good.

Seals do dry out though, so a good preventative measure is to apply rubber seal conditioner once a year. That keeps them supple and water tight.

Is it a few drops rolling down the window ? If so its considered normal. I don't have the manual to hand, but I believe its mentioned in there by audi.
Good evening Smurk,
Thank you for the reply and addition info.
yes it’s just a few drops after being washed with spray gun.
Thank you

I have the same problem.Look at the top of the gasket when you put the top down on passenger side. Mine is cinked up and perminently deformed due swashing it when closing, causing it to leak. I just hold the gasket open, carefully without pinching myself, while closing it to ensure it stays open for proper water flow.
Cheap way without spending tons.
