RE: Warranty and I hope Audi's reading

Did those holes have an Audi QA stamp on them or something?  I'm sorry
to hear that you have gotten the response that you have, but you've
gotta admit that a few holes in a bumper cover that would not be visible
were the license plate mounted really isn't that big a deal (at least
NIMHO ... )

Have you had the service history for the car checked?  I too prefer to
remove my front plate (even though it is illegal), and when I went to do
so on my '88 5kCSQW I found a similar problem.  The car was in a minor
fender bender and the bumper cover was replaced.  The replacement parts
must not be pre-drilled is what I figure ... so I put the front plate
back on ...

If you do find that this happened to your car as well I'd say your best
recourse would be to chase down the dealer that did the repair and have
them make good ... if the car only has 1200 miles it probably wasn't
that long ago that it was done.  Otherwise, who's to say that the first
owner didn't slip with a drill ...
