Hello, I've never owned an Audi before but I bought a 2011 A4 Dynamik 2.0 TFSI this week with 29,800 on the clock. It's a very nice car, although I'm still on the fence regarding the alloys. Anyway, it's asking for a service in a month. It's only had main Audi dealership servicing to date (Aberdeen Audi). Couple of questions... I'm concerned that, at some point, I might get the oil consumption problem that plagues these engines. The oil level is just under half-way at the moment, and the last oil change was done just over 2000 miles ago. I've hardly driven the car so I've not been keeping tabs, but does that sound right? I don't know if the level shows full after an oil change, but if so, that seems like a lot of oil in a short distance. Would it be worth me sticking with main dealer servicing in case the oil consumption problem arises, or am I OK to use an Audi indie specialist to save money? I don't want to put up too much of a fight to get Audi to fix the problem if it comes up, but I've read that as long as the servicing is done to spec, then it should be OK. Just wondering if I should err on the side of caution for a bit, just in case. Basically, what would you do in my situation? Second question relates to the rust problem with the wheel arches. Touch wood they seem OK at the moment, but is it worth protecting them now? Is it just a case of getting some vinyl to protect the paintwork? I don't fancy my chances of Audi offering to pay to fix both problems, so I'm looking to mitigate one of the issues if possible, and I'd rather they pay for the engine rebuild if it's needed. Thanks in advance for any help.
