    Hi guys,

    I've got 2012 A6 with Adaptive Air Suspension, and everything was fine until few days ago I've noticed that in the morning (after 12 hours parking) car's rear part is extremely low - both sides, right and left. As soon as I open door, even without sitting in or starting engine, it starts to rise and within 3-4 seconds it's back to normal.

    Someone suggested it's Air Springs worn and it's common issue, but I'm not sure, as I wonder why BOTH sides loose air, or maybe they are connected somehow? Did someone have something similar?

    There are no warnings on dashboard and no faults in VCDS. Drives just fine...

    How urgent is it to repair? How much would it cost? Someone suggested aftermarket Air Springs (about 175GBP each), and said it's about 30 minutes of work... Any suggestions?

    I suspect it might the pump that's at fault, probably seals have gone and air is leaking back out through the pump. The likelihood is that the pump will need replacing which can be 1800 at a dealer, though you may get some goodwill (we got ours replaced for just under 500 from local Audi dealer). Alternatively look for a decent indy who should be able to find a cheaper alternative pump.
