    Mega oil consumption

    Update..... Audi took the car in and it failed both the part 1 and 2 tests. They have then done a 'fix' i.e. installed a repair kit. Which makes me think its a known issue. They have changed injectors , breathers, pipes and other odds and sods. Still cant see how this helps as the oil has to...

    Bre discs and pads

    Hi all. My wifes A1 1.4 TFSi 185bhp is close to needing new discs and pads all round. Any recommendations or just stick to OEM? I always feel the brakes are a little under powered for the car. Could be done with a wee bit more bite. I don't want to spend hundreds but at the same time I would...

    Watchdog. 2.0 Tsingtao oil consumption exposed

    To be fair to Audi, other than the oil issue I have found the service at Aberdeen Audi to be exemplary. I had a couple off issues with my new Q3 Sline, one of which was the strange flutter through the steering wheel issue. They listened, reacted and fixed with no fuss. The oil issue was dealt...
