    My S3 goes through quite alot of oil. It did blow blue smoke but now doesnt seem to since i changed one of the turbo pipes that had split. But it only been 2 week. Before i was using a litre a month. I do drive hard though.
    Is this norm

    I don't do loads of miles. I've had the same litre of oil for topping up for about 18 months now in my 1.8TS
