New Audi owner and first question about oil consumptiona big question already

Hi to everybody. This looks like a great forum from what I can read already.
I am a new comer into the world of Audi but I am very familiar with German brands like Mercedes and BMW's. You can read my introduction thread is here
http://www.audi-forums.com/new-membe...udi-world.html
As my intro thread says I just bought to my daughter a 2007 Audi A3 2.0T with 90k miles in very good condition. When I said I bought the car it is because I already put a deposit on the car last week-end right after checking it out and I am going to pay the full amount and get the car this week-end. However, I am now just learning about Audi oil comsumption issues with the Audi 2.0T engine which seems to be a common problem that has turned into engine rebuilt for some so I am now having second thought and I need your help here. I inspected the car and test drove it and it looked, drove and worked beautifully however I remember seeing a quart of oil in the trunck. So I called the owner about this and he said it is because he needs to add about a quart of oil every 3k miles. If that is true, I can only take his word for it, I dont see that to be excessive oil comsuption for a car with that amount of miles although none of my cars, even my old 92 Mercedes SL, has ever needed oil to be top up in between oil changes. I chnage my oil every 3k miles. So my question to you folks is do all Audi 2.0t engines burn oil and what is considered acceptable? Should I be concerned about this? Could it be the beginning of a problem that would only get worse quickly?
Thanks a lot in advance

Hi Alpac,
Consumption of Audi A3 cars are all normal especially for an A3 2.0T engine that consumes a lot because it is very nervous. I have an Audi A3 1.6 TDI and I add to it the oil every 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers away. So do not worry my friend.

Yes, that's true @seb Paris. Alpac's French looks really good.
Well, I don't know much about Audi and the oil change since I don't own it. Last week my neighbour purchased the Audi and was asking me the same question as Alpac regarding the oil change. Thanks @seb parts for the reply. I will now let my neighbour know about the oil change. He managed to bring his Audi using the transport service provider. visit their website.
