    smoking ?

    my old man says my car is smoking, he thinks its buring oil (i aint seen any smoke so i can't comment on the colour of the said smoke)

    i had a quick search around online for a bit more info about the A3, does this sound right ?

    i tend to agree, valve stem seals & oil & filter change.
    however has your car lost power & become hard to start, ie turning over a long time on starter before engine starting,if so then it could well be piston rings.as for the most econ solution, i'm afraid i can't help as i've had no connection with audi expenses. hope i've helped in some way, best of luck, regards

    my car shoundn't need a oil change as i had a new sump, new oil and filter done about 3 weeks ago.

    is it using oil? is it bad on fuel?

    I would get the car connected to vag com or something like that.
    It might be running rich.
    Is it worse if you leave it to idle for say ten mins then blip the throttle?
    until you have run a scan for fault codes... i wouldnt start guessing.
