    Please watch and also message Watchdog whilst it's being broadcast live. I have sent a few emails and messages already...
    What I find surprising is that an Audi Customer Relations Manager would go on a 'long holiday' just before this was aired. That's the information I was given when I called AUK earlier this evening about refunds...

    I've set it to record. I'm aiming to be home to see it but I'm 100 miles from home tomorrow. I was contacted by watchdog about my case. In the end they didn't want to film mine as I had just received my refund from audi therefore not given them much room for a viewer result from audi. Hopefully after tomorrow this will be the end of the oil issue and just become an instant no quibble repair at any dealership. They have definatly filmed some owners.

    Yep, similar response from watchdog as I have had the car repaired too, however I wonder how much these forums have escalated cases into it being broadcast.
    I will be watching it with some beers! I hope there's an Audi representative that gets torn apart by Anne. She's like the head mistress you'd wet your pants thinking about and not in the nice way lol

    ARRGGHHHH. How did they miss out the a3, and more worryingly for me, the 1.8tfsi.

    Have to say I thought that was pretty weak. Still, if it helps some people get refunds or work done for free then I guess it's a useful step.

    600 miles per 1/2 litre is a ridiculous figure, too.

    Hopefully this will help us all out.

    My car is booked in for the first oil consumption test on Tuesday. They have confirmed that it is free, and will even give the car a free health check and wash & vac.

    Currently I use 1l per 350 miles.

    I agree with silentbrown. That was a massive let down and not very well put together. Expected a lot more from BBC's Watchdog! :angry:
    There was no more information provided that isn't already available on these forums. I'm really annoyed Audi UK still won't admit liability and it's on a case by case basis dependant on the cars service history.
    1200 miles a litre of oil as an absolute minimum is a disgusting statistic for a modern engine and for most owners not having the fix, that's a pipe dream!
