Then just drive the car so the oil is hot and it will probably go away 
completely after a day or so.

Had this problem after some maintenance once and saw it occur in another 
Audi that had been in the shop for an extended period.

Oil gets back into the lifters and fixes itself. I sometimes takes a day 
or so. Driving is the only cure and an easy one at that.
