    I looked into this when my car hit 3 years old. You can extend the Audi warranty which I was told gives the same cover as the original warranty - quote was around £800. You have to do this through an Audi garage I think. If you go for a company such as Warranty Direct it's around half this price for what is supposedly the same level of cover. This was a couple of years back though so prices may have changed. In the end I've risked it and not bothered with a warranty. I figured that something going wrong each year at a cost of more than £800 was unlikely (though admittedly not out of the question) and have effectively "saved" money so far.

    I've just found out the exact quotes from November 2006. £689 for 12 month Audi warranty, "special offer" (apparantly). £388.53 for 12 month Warranty Direct quote. My car is a 2.0 FSi, not a turbo - so yes, it would be wise to consider that when you make your choice.

    Oh seeing a bit i should add my lava grey A3 only a 1.6 so thats why maybe my extended warranty is cheaper :)
    But seeing you have the 2.0TFSI as said you wont want to pay for a blown turbo! or any thing so would be best to get it.

    Went into Audi last week and asked them how much an extended warranty would be and they said 800 odd.

    So I'm going with Warranty Direct, same level cover as Audi with wear and tear cover and up to 24k limited mileage for £400.

    Think they said they pay 100% or labour costs and 80% or 90% of parts cost.

    The £400 is for work to be done at a franchised Audi dealer so would be cheaper if you told them you would be having the work carried out at an independant.
