I'm guessing Brice is also subbed to the 200q20v list -- but I'm no  
longer subbed to that list, so I can't tell.  Anyhow, Audi made a  
change to the documentation for the later cars.  It is true -- the  
system holds over 10 qts -- but ~ 2 quarts reside in the oil cooler  
and oil cooler lines.  If you do an oil change and add 10 qts you  
will have ~12 qts of oil and will likely burn up your catalytic  
converters.  Suggest 8 qts and check the level.

Welcome to V8 ownership. :~)
