It is normal for engines to burn oil. What you want to worry about is a change in how much it burns. If you bought one new and it always burned 1/2 liter every 5,000 miles and then it started burning 1 liter. Look into it. I have had 3 VW and 1 Audi, but no REAL oil burning issues.
My 2.4 2002 A4 has burned the grand total of 7 gallons of oil so far (33000 miles)
Audi say this is fine! They dont pay for the oil of course.
My last 2.4 was bad but this is worse. I think it is mainly a V6 problem but the same unit is going into the new A6.
