What's cheaper?

Frequent oil changes for $25? or a new motor for $3000 (PLUS  

I change the oil in my A4 about every 4000 to 5000kms (3000-ish miles)  
along with the plugs and will continue to do so. 3 oil changes a year  
is less than $100 (less than half that if you DIY). CHEAP preventative  
maintenance IMHO.

Once you have sludge, you are seeing a visual symptom AFTER damage has  
already occurred.
