Noticed all this rust underneath my windshield seal. This is the seal rusting I assume? Looks separate from the body and not painted.
This?

What's that supposed to mean? [rolleyes] [evilmad]

Is it the body or the seal?! Looks to be the seal to me.

All that rust will pull right off with the seal. Mine is doing the same thing.

Replacement seals are ~$50 on ECS tuning.

Lol. If it was truly the body then yea the car's done for sure. Would be surprising for a California car of all things.

I would probably get a Quattro but interested in seeing how it compares with the extra weight and grip etc. Obviously its not going to be as fast in a straight line no matter how you spell it out [rolleyes]

Wow, I'm surprised your dealer didn't have an insane markup level.

Yea, and I would be getting them at cost not list.

Trying a junkyard first though.
