Default damn! sorry about that...I hope audi takes care of this and you well

you should definitely get some compensation for this as it will take a long time to fix.

No one else has had this problem have they?

Default ack...that isnt good.

Hopefully they wont have to replace the entire sunroof because from what I remember its glued in place and is not something generally done by the dealership but rather by a body shop.

Default sorry that it happened to you.

you mentioned that it had been making noise, what kind of noise? also, when it blew up, how exactly did it happen?

Default if you tinted your sunroof glass that most likely would've caused it...

because the glass is tempered, just like the windshield, and when the tint dries and shrinks it puts stress on the glass and can cause it to explode almost exactly like what you describe.
