Looks solid. That is a fine engine.
~4,403 miles in eleven months? Might need some good driving!
Yeah with only having a 7 miles drive to work and not typically using the S3 on the weekend it does not get used often.
Aren't iron and aluminium usually higher in earlier changes then go down? What am I missing?
Yes, but PPM / 1k miels is not too far off the 5ppm number i find to be off and something amiss....also the engine is known to dump iron into the oil more than typical.
