Ive got to say im really disappointed with the design of the rear doors.

When it rains the amount and dirt and crap that builds up on the rear bottom of the inside of the door is really bad.

Anyone else noticed this ?

Yes it is bad they get really dirty but they form part of the wheel arch so no way round it, just have to remember to give it a clean when it car wash day.

I have this issue also but the dirt is only in the first seal and actually not inside, my Discovery 3 was worse than the Audi, I also live up a track. As Bigmac mentions more cleaning, 5 minutes more....

If i actually took it off road, I hate to think how much dirt would come up :)

Where I live there is always a lot of mud on the roads from farmers driving tractors in and out of wet & muddy fields, you want to see how bad the dirt is on the doors but as said above it doesn't pass the rubber seal and its only a bit of a pain because I have to clean stones out of that groove with a stiff brush. Pretty minor inconvenience though.

I find a jet wash does the job. Careful not to get water in the car, just spray the edges of the doors.

Rear and front, and the crap gets stuck in the plastic groove. You wash the car and when you come to micro fibre the inside of the doors you have to get the sponge out again...... arrrrrrgh!!!
Small price to pay though

The first time I gave mine a clean, I was amazed how dirty the insides of the rear doors were, but as stated, doesn't really pass the seals. It just means the mf cloths get a little more covered when doing the doors and shuts
