2012 Audi A8L: Checking the Oil

December 20, 2011


I woke up sick today. Like full blown flu sick. So I'm going to make this short and sweet.

This morning I checked the Audi's oil level. Took a few seconds and I didn't have to leave the driver's seat. As you can see there has been some consumption, but not enough for me to engage in the labor of popping the hood and pouring some in. I'm sick remember.

I should also point out that the Audi is starting to warn us that its first oil change will be due at 5,000 miles, which seems a bit early. I'll check the sedan's owner's manual and get back to you on that one.
