I am posting this on here to see if anyone can offer some advice or guidance to what might be going wrong with my motor and if anyone else has had the same problem?
I recently purchased an Audi A4 B8 (59 plate) 2.0 TFSI from Car Giant in late January.
After driving it a couple of days the engine oil light came on, I put oil in to the car however keeping an eye on the engine oil level (the electronic display in the car) it was obvious that the oil level kept dropping.
I took it back to Car Giant who replaced the oil filter and the oil filter washer, however this did not remdy the problem and I figured out that it was burning a litre of oil (The top of the electronic Max mark to the bottom Min Mark) in about every 300 miles (Or tank of fuel).

I returned it back to Car Giant who replaced the following parts...Wait for it......
Piston Rings
Big End Bearings
Head Gasket Set
All Valve Seals
Engine Breather
Manifold Gasket
Turbo Gasket
Oil Cooler Gasket
Air and oil filter
Spark Plugs
Timing chain kit and tensioners
Sump Gasket
Front and rear crank seals

They stated that they had to re-build the engine and they had also sent of the cylinder head for repairs (Where they sent it I dont know) and kept the car for Three whole weeks much to my annoyance.

I collected the car on Friday after they claimed to have done the work and fixed the problem and noticed that the engine oil level was showing empty. I drove away from Car Giant regardless and the next day put some oil in the car(Half a litre). After turning on the ignition with the bonnet open the oil indicator showed an oil gauge mainly full. I have done about 15 miles on the car since and the oil level seems to be dropping as in has dropped to just above half way.
This seems like its still burning oil way out of manufacturers tolerances. Am i just being paranoid and the engine is fine or should I be worried that there is something else wrong with the car and probably look to getting it refunded.

I called Car Giant today and informed them that I will be taking the car back on Monday most probably for a refund.

Has anyone else had problems with this type of engine or maybe someone can offer some advice on what the issue is, TBH I think i just want my money back now

Thanks for any advice or help.

this is a known issue on the 2.0 TFSi engine.

Are you measuring the oil level on a dipstick or is it on the MMI ?

Either the rebuild hasn't been done correctly or not at all.

There's been a lot of discussion on the A5 forum - see here. Several owners have had rebuilds under warranty

Why did you drive the car if the oil level showed empty?
