My local Audi dealer in Texas just emailed me about 2020 A3's now at $9,000 off MSRP to $26,815 and 2020 S3's now at $10,000 off MSRP to $39,110.

Just passing this along. Happy hunting/negotiating!

Quote from OmarA28 :
That's not normal your car is burning oil. There is probably an issue with a gasket a cylinder ring or whatever. Bmw, Audis and some volvos are known for that.

Toyota had to extend some model engines for the same reason.
Try to convince the dealer that this is not normal; actually I had a very lengthy argument with him on that - and their response was that I should've read the manual before buying the car. so here you go. read the manual before buying any car.

I had the same problem with Q5-2012 model.
that Model year had a class action lawsuit against Audi; and audi offered to fix the engine or buy back the lemon they have. and to fix the mistake they have instead of fixing the damn engine they update the manual to say "Ok to add a quart every 600 Miles". well Never again for me.

Base S3 is $43,000 MSRP. Getting $10K off that would be hot. I'd trade in my GTI and do that immediately.

The EA888 engine is highly reliable and a great engine. Only weak spot is the pump/thermostat and easily can be replaced under warranty.

Highly recommend this brand. Only as reliable as you take care of.

I do understand you mate, I am suffering with the same issue my volvo is burning oil too. sometimes talking to corporate and presenting evidence of dealership service can be of help. I know volvo does swap your engine of you have evidence of service which I don't have.

Located the OP dealership in TX. They have a large number of cars listed with 9k off. And it appears they are the only dealership nationwide that is advertising this deal.

Bought my 2013 GTI used with 40K miles, have had 50K miles on it over 3 years, no issues. And rough, SoCal miles @ daily commute with lots of heat and bad traffic.

EA888 engine, I do oil changes myself (you don't even need to get under the car, just a fluid extractor, 5QT oil and a filter. Oh, and it needs sparks every 20-25K miles, perhaps because I have mine tuned, and will give me the occasional misfire when sparks are getting older, which gets away after replacement, or did 2/2 times. Only maintenance I've paid for ontop, were DSG fluid service, which again I do on a local VW tuner/mechanic that charges 3/5 the auth. dealer.

Car runs and handles fine, has better interior quality vs. newer BMW cars that push $45K+.
This is an ambiguous engine for Group VAG, is used in some 3 dozen cars (or more?), in both 2.0 and 1.8 TSI versions.

Yes, it likes oil, but this is the same for all turbo-charged cars, and especially those with relatively high compression that use thin oils. Oil is a consumable for these cars. It is not a RX-8 by any means, but it just sips some.

I just keep the .5-.7Qt that is left in the 5Qt jug and drop it all in @ 2.5-3K miles or w/e I remember. Haven't gotthe the "add a Qt" or w/e , message that others did, tho I don't doubt them.
Oil change @ 5K, typ at $12-15 for the 5Qt through numerous offers (I use mobil 1 0-40 "EU" formula, no issues), Mann OEM filters are some $10-12. Sparks are $25 for 4.

Long story short, its often luck, good or bad. And people with problems are more likely to speak up / get loud and give wrong impressions for the overall situation.
It is also the mentality people carry with them buying a car and the expectations they build up with...Mercedes buyers seem to be super picky and slam them for tiny issues, Tesla people seem to swallow whole camels by comparison and don't mind suffering though issues that i bet the dreaded merc guys would have lemoned their cars over.

Would like me a 5door S3 ... but priorities have shifted...will run this GTI to the ground first, then we will see.

I have owned 5 Audi's last one was in 2015 Allroad, no issues great cars, but the price just keeps shooting up so if you can get one on sale or whatever do it. You want the awd Prem Plus and up. I scored during the lock down a great deal from MB lease return auction via a dealer and ended up buying a MB GLC 300 4Matic for a super cheap price. It drives great and so on, BUT Audi's offer so much more inside the car for UI.

Audi you just reach like you know where it's at and it's there, MB is so a%% backwards and they charge you for everything single thing, I was so shocked and felt like really a 50k SUV has a sound system that's worse than my Prius.... The dealers are worse, they say it's OK if things break bring it in under warranty and we fix it all with a smile on our face... So what happens when the warranty runs out. The list goes on and MB has A and B services 600.00 / 900.00 , Audi everytime you take the car in they do part of the service. It goes on and on, so yea Audi's are nice cars if you get them on sale, I think I would trade my SUV for a like wise Q5 anyday.....

Why the German cars are bad compared to Japanese?
Because Japanese cars are made by the Japanese and the German cars are not made by Germans.

I owned an Audi and took it in weekly for repairs. Would never own another.
I won a A4'13 bought new and have taken to repair only once. So what's your point?
