Thanks to the team for fixing the oil consumption problem on my 60 plate A4 1.8TFSI with 75000 miles on the clock without any cost to me. I bought the car from Audi 8 months old and have always had it serviced by Blade/Heritage and I'm very glad I did now because the repair was done under goodwill with Audi UK paying 70% and Heritage covering the rest. I had noticed the oil consumption was getting worse for the last couple of years but waited until it was worse than the service limit (0.5l within 600 miles), once that happened it took 3 weeks from the oil consumption test to getting the car repaired, including the time for Heritage to work with Audi UK on the goodwill costs. I had read on the newsgroups that with a full Audi service history a goodwill repair for the oil consumption on this type of engine was possible but I'm really pleased that Audi covered £3.5k of work (changing pistons, piston rings and PCV). Thanks again.
