    A question that I have that I have not found answers to regarding the Audi S4...

    1) Digital compass?
    2) Miles per gallon?
    3) Oil change indicator?

    Digital compass? only if you have satnav or road angel or some other GPS device installed.

    Why does DIS not report 'trip mileage'? It really [censored] me off that I paid the money and cannot get such simple feedback from the Driver Information System ...

    I know, very annoying. My old Mk3 GTi had trip setting & cumulative setting so you didn't have to remember to reset everything before a trip.

    Yes but it is a separate display, purely for trip miles, so you don't get journey time, MPG, average speed etc unless you remember to reset the cumulative totals on the DIS. Most cars have a switch on the DIS to flip between trip and cumulative, with Audi you just get cumulative. Feeble.

    you guys should count yourselves lucky. My rear seat doesn't even fold!

    I've seen an audi digital compass somewhere, may have been vagparts. It was built into the rear view mirror, with a small readout to one side with red characters. N, NE, E, SE, etc.
