Hey Carter,
I think all the Audi dealers use normal Oil, unless you specifically
ask for the synthetic stuff. I have also heard some debate that its
not bad to use the organic oil when the car is new... It may help the
engine to break in better. I dont know if this is true. If it were me. I
would leave that oil in, for at least 3k. Its probably not going to do
any harm.

When I got my used S4, it had organic oil in it... YUCK, and the car
had over 30k on it. I am now using mobil 1, 5w30 and changing it
about every 5k to 7k miles. I mostly drive on the highway and so its
easy driving for me. If it was all city, I might change it sooner. I think
every 10k is too long for my peace of mind.  But with synthetic, I
think every 3k is too often.
