    How much oil?

    this has probably been discussed a number of times but i cant seem to find it anyway.
    Servicing my A3 2.0tdi 170bhp at the weekend, does anyone know how much oil they take?
    thanks

    typically 4.5 litres if filter changed... best pour in 4 litres, check dip stick and add more as required.

    Put 4 litres in, run engine at tickover for half a minute or so while checking for leaks, switch off, let the oil settle while you have a cup of tea, then check and top up as necessary.

    Textbook!
