    Newbie... question about A3 oil consumption

    Question for all A3 FSI owners...
    Are you finding that the oil consumption of a new car is particularly high? I have been told by Audi that this is normal - but 4 litres of oil in just 9000miles seems excessive to me....
    I took it into the garage to have it looked at, as I have twice been stranded on the hard shoulder when the oil light comes on (luckily I use the provided oil bag and keep a spare litre of oil)... The guys in the garage (in the service department) said that the car was still within factory limits and that it can take up to 20,000miles for the engine to properly "bed" in... and as such would use more oil... I have to keep a track of how often I am putting in oil and if it becomes more regularly then to take it back...
    How do I find out what the factory limits are??
    Is this normal consumption??
    Any insight would be very welcome
    Thanks
