    If it is still under warranty with Audi contact/take it back asap, if you leave it, sooner or later it may cost a lot more to repair at your expense. We all leave things too long and in the end it costs us more.

    You may get somewhere there given they did it, so if its new gaskets etc then they may take pity, give them a shout.

    still doing a few test as nit sure if oil from head yet.

    does any body know where the oil feed is inside the block/head ie what side of the rear of the engine ? drivers side or passenger side.

    also i have been told to check tandem pump make sure not leaking out of there and also cam seals ?
