It's a shame you're just out of the 12 year anti corrosion warranty. Had something similar but must say, no where near as bad on my 2001 S3 a few years back.

Audi repaired it FoC.

First step i "chiseled" away at the loose rust with a flat blade screwdriver and rubber mallet ..



I tried a wire brush drill atachment but once the loose rust had been removed this had more of a polshing effect than an ability to clear rust

A user here suggested a twisted knott wheel brush. I picked up a couple from toolstation ... superb bit of kit




Along with a Dremmel for the more intricate sections i ended up with ...




This is the inside of the trim from the lower edge... here you can see how the build up of crud triggers rust



Cleaned and prepped ...




Next stage was the application of Bilt Hamber Deox gel then liberal coating of Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80.

Before ..






After ...




Thats my bit complete. car goes in for final Prep and paint on Monday

Thanks. I'm not painting it myself. Dropping at the bodyshop today. Haven't a clue what paint they'll use. They've done work for me previously and the finish and colour match were spot on that time.
