Probably took Toveks a Car in the City, the cost of this at the time, Audi said that I have not been following the instruction book's tvättanvisningar.

We have at least five or six cars, where the rear lights have a crack. Cause condensation to form and the lights break down. Bilmetro has been tested in cars, but we can only answer that it is either in degreasing, or the washer fluid that is made of it. The point is that we have a private bay and a private spolarvätskeautomat, so that we know exactly what all of the cars are washed, it is passed miljöavfettning, and washer fluid. We all think that it is nonsense. It is the poor quality of the film. Our company has invested in new lights that have so far been conducted. Cars that are affected are the Volkswagen Golf in 2017, and the face lifted to the Golf of the later models. The Caddy does not seem to be affected.” < / span> < / span>

However, I have serviced my car in the same workshop for many years. It will most likely not goodwill if the servicing of the car in any other position than the Audi. It is worth mentioning that they have a problem with their tail lights.”
