    Yup, zero oil consumption here too, 2700 miles.

    When I got my A3 2.0FSI (from new) it drank oil like it was going out of fashion! a litre every 1000miles!! Until about 7 or 8k when it calmed down.

    Same here, mine is with 7k (miles) and no oil comsumption at all (pleased with that!!) my service, acording to DIS is to be done at 15k.... (it will be the first service) I keep checking oil level and so far nothing to report.

    Average fuel consumption from 0 km (on computer 2 which I never reset) is 12.8L/100Km (do not know in mph...) Average fuel consumption now is 11L/100Km

    My DIS after the first week showed needing a service around 4K, now at just under 5K it shows service needed at 18K in 370 days.

    Engine has not used one drop of oil. Strange really 'cus am ragging it every chance I get ho hum... This is much better then my last S3 for sure which needed 1/2 litre of oil at this point.

    I suspect is just a running in thing, best wait a few months then look again, anyway are you not sure you should be booting it and not worrying about the DIS readout...?

    This maybe a stupid question, but can someone tell me how I can see how long I have until my next service. The thread states that you can see this in the DIS - I cant seem to find how to get it to give me the info ?!?!?

    Thanks in advance for answering my dumb question
