When I took delivery of the car dealer said i may need to put oil in after 2000 - 3000 miles but shoud only do this when the car asks for oil.

I've now done 4200 miles and checking the oil level it still reads 3/4 full with Oil Level Ok on the MMI.

Should I top this back up to full or only put oil in once the car asks for it as instructed by the dealer?:confused:

Any advice would be appreciated

The S5s are a bit thirstier than the A5 engines. I needed to put some in at 2500 miles but I have a dipstick and relied on the old fashioned way.

I still wonder the same thing. The dealer advised the oil will need toped up more than my last honda, in part because of the oil in the audi being synthetic. And to check it every 600 miles. Its not a problem checking it with the electronic check on the computer. But it has hardly used any oil which I am happy about, but the free courtesy oil is still waiting to be opened.

I've done nearly 2.5k miles and the MMI is showing in the middle, should it be on Full or in the middle when its OK?

No need to top it off. You can just wait until the MMI level is closer to the minimum or when the car asks for it. I had the same question as you and was provided with this information by a senior service tech at my dealership.

RGB; i would add some more to bring it nearer the 3/4 to full mark. Why starve it of oil!

Keep it full, why take the risk. You get a free litre of oil with the car anyway. Use it.
