23k miles- the turbo broke and gave almost no boost, replaced
30k- didnt start up, ecu again
41k- the car didnt rev over 3k rpm, ecu to blame
54k- engine broke on highway, caused big holdup
60k- didnt rev over 2 rpm, dealer said "unfixible"
i just sold the car to junk yard for 15k
couldnt deal with it any more
my wife also had an 2009 audi a4
at 10k turbo blew
my f01 bmw has been pretty good so far, on needed to reset ecu once becuase of bad trottle response
