Water Leak?

I've just bought a 96 A4 1.8 SE Manual (2 weeks ago). It's done 96.5K miles and I have done 800 since i bought it without any problems.

However I have noticed that there is a lot of water coming from underneath the car coming from what appears to be 3 seperate points. The car leaks when the engine is switched off and doesn't seem to stop. There is about 1 drop every 10-15 seconds. It is about 3 feet in about as far back as the front wheels.

I know this water is not coming from the coolant system as the level is still at maximum.

I presume it is coming from the air conditioning system.

Is this normal???

Does anyone else have this problem??

Does anyone have any other ideas??

it's perfectly normal for the car too drip water if the air - con has been running for a while - So this means when you park and the engine is switched off, the water will still drip as the pipes start returning too normal temperature - in other words the air - con pipes start too unfreeze causing the water too drip too the ground.

No! worries though :)
It's perfectly normal - I can assure you. :D
By the way - If your air - con does that, you have a wicked system

Nice !!!
