Gave my A5 a really good clean and polish this weekend and was mortified to find that one of my stainless steel tailpipes has a big rust patch the size of a 5p piece on it. It looks like it will get worse over time.

Did a quick search here for "rust tail pipe" but no hits ... am I the only one?

As these are on a 1.8T they carry an additional cost so unlikely to be covered by any warranty. I only got them about 9 months ago :(

Hi Tuff, that's bad news. Sure it's rust and not just a general discolouration of the finish? If they're the genuine Audi items, they're manufactured from T304 s/s and covered by a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty so you should certainly be able to get it replaced, no questions asked.

The Missus has had the TT equivalent on her car for a few month and they're still pristine (I cleaned it at the w/end). Maybe you got a duffer?
