    2011 Audi Corrosion Warrenty

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    My 2011 S4 Phantom Black Pearl has bubbles starting to form on the hood from corrosion from within the paint. These bubbles have come forth within the past month.

    Local Audi is saying the hood has been re painted. They are saying "orange peel" is their determining reason.
    They spent 30+ mins looking at vin, rest of the car, underside of hood, etc...
    There are no edges in the paint, no dirt in the paint, no differences in flakes/patterns, overlaps, poor blending, etc..

    The Audi dealership that had done all the services up to 92k miles has record of them premium detailing the car every visit.
    I bought the car from a private dealership that bought the car from Audi at 92.2k miles and I bought it at 92.4k miles.
    Paint was immaculate. Only thing visible now is the some rock chips from most likely the northern winters, wash/swirl marks, 'orange peel' (said by them, but still looks like paint on the 2017 on the lot.).
    Car currently has 120k. miles.

    There are no records on the Carfax of the any accident.

    Have had a 3rd party auto body shop look at the areas of concern and they say the issue is from corrosion within from the aluminum hood.

    Any recommendations?
