Con rod fix seems a bit of a strange description to cover this kind of repair, I'd be questing that if I were you.
That I must say is a cracking result !Good morning all.
Just thought I'd give my experiences with regards to the oil consumption issue. I recently purchased an a3 1.8tfsi which immediately started burning through oil.
I contacted audi which recommended completing the oil consumption test. They found an oil leak which needed sorting first.
The car failed the initial oil consumption test within 120miles! When it came to writing a case I was challenged with the usual "not full audi service history" (but does have fsh). I pushed back and highlighted that out of the 9 stamps 4 were audi and the final 2 were intact at a seat dealership!
Fast forward 5 weeks and I received the call that audi have agreed to pay 90% with the customer (me!) To pay 10%. I thought this was fair enough for a car with 116k miles.
Car is booked in for the week beginning 5th october at bromley audi.
I found that if you appear to know what you're talking about (I'm not a mechanic but had read numerous threads about the issue) they seem to take you a little more serious.
I'm also an NHS key worker which I think given the current climate also helped!
Hope that helps anyone.
I have a Dynamik, currently on 47K. Do you know when the oil consumption issue became apparent, or was it an issue when you bought it?Should be fine with 2012 onwards...i had a 2011 B8 2.0 Dynamik which had the issues... Stay well clear from 2009/2011 engines unless your certain the chocolate pistons /conrods have been replaced
It's completely a when not if mate. Could happen anytime, I'd be surprised if a car without the fix has made it 10-11 years without the problem presenting itself regardless of the mileage it's currently on.I have a Dynamik, currently on 47K.

I can't remember if I called Audi about my current car, or another Dynamik that I nearly bought, but Audi told me that whichever car I enquired about hadn't had any work done with respect to this issue. It doesn't appear to be using an excessive amount of oil right now but I'll give them a call and double-check for peace of mind. I appreciate the advice, thanks!It's completely a when not if mate.

If you're not sure if your car has had the fix I'd phone up Audi and ask for a report on the service history?

I bought the car from an independent garage who said the fix had been applied when it hadn't. Luckily it had full Audi service history so they cover the 5k costs. As others have stated, you will know if you have the issue. I was topping up the oil as often as fuel before the fix.... Perhaps 1ltr every 600 miles.I have a Dynamik, currently on 47K.

I picked up car today all I got told was piston ring conrod repair, no break down of what was carried out
My service advisor said new spark plugs and filter on the major service, they couldn't even top my brake fluid up or quote me a price to do it. I now have a service light that won't go out until this is drained and refilled
All I got was my invoice for water pump so I know nothing about the repair and was told because the repair was free she didn't think there was a warranty on their repair
I was led to my car and luckily before I left I did a walk round of my vehicle only to find a badly damaged door which now looks like will have to be booked back in, tried to pull a fly one
