Anyone else getting mighty fed up with the inside part of the bottom door sline trim allowing mud and rubbish to intrude and collect inside the trim and it requiring a brush to get it all out? Maybe this WHY WE NEED MUDFLAPS Audi! Happens on both front and rear doors and manages to get past the small rubber seal.

It doesn't get inside the rubber seal on mine, but it does annoy me that every time I wash the car I forget to open the door and clean the edge of the door sill as it does collect a load of grime between the seal and outer door panel!

I had the discovery and that was far worse than the Q but even with the front mud flaps on it still gets in. Yes the use of a small brush or the hose on to a fine spray.

I was going to ask this question too. Mine are all clogged up with crap as well.

I suspect it may be caused by using a power wash foam lance before washing. I would be interested to know if anyone has this issue but doesn't use a pressure washer.

I don't use a power washer and the dirt collects on mine too, but a quick wipe with a noodle wash mit and it's all gone.
