I would either drive it or get rid of it.
If you drive it:
Monitor all fluid levels especially oil.
Keep a log of oil consumption e.G. 2 quarts every 1000 miles or whatever the case may be, and keep receipts for oil purchased.
Again the rate of consumption that would trigger a repair should be spelled out in the actual warranty or any supplements to it, read the warranty and know what the range is. They may be delibertly vauge on this.
Keep detailed maint, records, oil/filter changes etc.
How much oil does it use?
Generally 1 quart every 1000 miles is considered within the "normal" range. I think it is excessive for a new car, but my opinion would be overridden by the terms of the warranty.
SInce this is a written warranty it is subject to interpertation and if the car performs within the limits of the warranty, no "Expert" testimony will change that, since the obligations of the dealer are spelled out in the warranty.
I would also contact Audi directly by email, phone and lodge a complaint, they may override the dealer for customer relations, or they may do nothing.
