Our car is in for some paint protection and they think something has been left out from under the bonnet (a cover over the grill area). Does anyone have a picture of theirs so I can compare before going back to Audi. Thank you.

Ours in for repair but I'm 99% sure it looked like this -

That's great thank you. This is the image he sent us, which I think looks the same.

Yeah it's pretty basic really, I don't even know what any of it does 😅

Just don't fill the screen wash up on a very windy day as I did and it blew the strut holding it up out and came crashing down, thankfully I had just moved! Guess dont use it much but was expecting a hydraulic boot lid, but mine looks like those pictures too

Cannot believe not hydraulic bonnet, on a car the price it is. Evidence of more cost cutting by Audi. Annoying really.

If it's just cost cutting it's annoying I admit, but are you sure it's not for weight savings? every little helps on these EVs for people panicking about range, and those hydraulic gas struts are beefy...

I know, to my untrained eye, doesn't look too dissimilar to normal combustion engine.

I thought that, but then I have only opened it once since I got it in October so probably does same some weight and isn't used that much.
