The tarnishing on the chrome trim above exhaust pipes is in 2 places. It is black. Is it worth replacing and can they just remove it without taking the whole bumper off. What causes this. It appeared when the car was just a week old!

Hello again -

Thank you for your reply --

Evidently this is a manufacturing fault - the car is new - a 14 reg car... you are best advised to go back to the supplying dealer and complain about this.... they need to know -be made aware of this issue-- they will report back to Audi Hq... but for you - you will get the replacement done for free....

Too - its unlikely, but should you have the same issue again or with other chromed parts - they will you having reported it, deal with the issue FOC for you...

Im very pleased to have helped you - Do let me know if you need anything more --
