Default A7 = mice magnet?

A few weeks ago I found some mice droppings in the engine bay and today, I found more! Other than putting traps around the car, what else can I do to prevent this from happening again?

Instead of traps, use bait boxes. Mice eat it and leave to find water.

Where are you parking your A7? if the mice are in your garage, you will need to look into pest control.

All of these products are meant for the interior, most people don't mind mice roaming around the great outdoors. However, you can put a pouch or two in the engine compartment, mice will avoid the area.

The other thing you can try is moth *****.

Mmmm. Nothing is better than the pungent smell of mothballs in the morning. Especially in a $70K luxury automobile. The thought of it brings back memories of my grandmother's closets when I was a kid. Thanks, but I think I'd pass and find another solution.
