Hi guys, the past month or so, I have noticed something really weird about the windshield on my 2001 330i. Every time I back out of my driveway and head down the street, I make a right turn and as I do so, I notice that the bushes and trees and basically everything in sight blur in a wavy manner. It's sort of like this: On a relaly hot day, you can see the heat rising off the pavement making distant objects blury and wavy like. It seems to be all over my windsheild but even more so to the right. I can't remember if I have heard anything about this. At first, I cleaned the glass 5 times in a row just to make sure that it's not vapor build up from the vinyelx I use on the dash. It's really strange. Furthermore, it doesn't happen only at that time, it's all the time. I really love this car. I like everything about it. It just strikes me that weird things like this would show up on a car of this quality. Any suggestions? Thank ya. -Cliff

The 2001 Audi A4's were plagued by this problem. The glass itself is in fact distorted. Any cure, unfortunately, is to replace the windshield. this should be covered under warranty since this is a defect.

interesting..

I searched the archives and found a few things on this matter. You know, I just hate to have the dealer start ripping things off my car and replacing them. In addition, I didn't get the titainium head light inserts. Instead, I got black ones and for a while I was pissed but, I thought it was better not to have them open the covers and replace them. I don't know, maybe it's a stupid philosophy but I rather not have anyone tinker with my car is necessary. Now my windshield is a different story. It's a saftey issue as well. I will have to think about it. Thanks for the reply everyone. -C

Yes it seems to be a very common problem.. I have seen it in mine on rare occasions.. It 's not enough to annoy me, its only sometimes I see it while turning. Funny thing is I also seen this on my 98 accord coupe, very strange. I can live with it instead of having my windshield ripped out. But yours sounds worse, keep us posted :thumbdwn:

The headlamp trim is easy as pie; go ahead, they can't really botch that up too badly. ;)
