    My car recently went in for its first servicce after one year (19k) and the garage picked up on the tyre wear.

    In short, the tyres on the passenger side (left) were worn more than then tyres on the right, this seemed odd to me that it wasn't on the axle but on the side?

    When i queried this i was told it was nothing to worry about but I haven't heard/seen this before and i was wondering if there is anything i should look out?!

    If they are not to bad I would get them checked and tracked and balanced at a reputable garage .
    If still under warranty I would be getting the garage to check it and the suspension components springs etc etc to find out why this is happening .
    Sounds like the garage don't care about the wear as it would be cost to you to replace the tyres if they wear more .
    What make of tyres are on the car ?

    So the car has Michelin Latitude Sport 3’s all around, I did raise it with the garage (Audi) as it is only a year old and I was surprised by the wear on the tyres. They just said it was normal and probably potholes...

    weird as it would be warranty work they would get paid for..

    I would contact Audi direct and see if there has been a recall for this .and see if they will authorise the garage to look at it for a fault.

    You need a 4 wheel alignment check - it seems probable that your Q5 is 'crabbing', getting it done will transform the handling - amazing when all the wheels are pointed in the same direction!
