    Ok so today on my way home the oil light came on saying top up 1 litre but still safe to drive. Now considering I had new pistons, con rods etc almost 2 years ago FOC by Audi I’m a little concerned as it’s the first time the oil light has come on since the repair.

    Now I know these Audi’s are thirsty on oil and I do drive it hard at times so maybe it’s just natural consumption but still got me worried that the issue has come back (can it come back after the repair??) My local mechanic changed the oil I’d say within the last 12 months so not as if is been 2 years since oil changed, by which I’d expect a little top up.

    Has anyone else experienced this AFTER the repair?

    Thanks in advance

    Assuming it was actually topped up to the max mark after the service 1L in 11k miles is nothing. Thats very low oil usage so I wouldn't be worried.

    Presumably you check the oil level from time to time? :)
