Wow, that is indeed dire - perhaps a bad batch? I've driven an 09 V8 Manual and it feels solid inside. Slight creaking of brakes in slow traffic is all I've noticed. Slight buzzing from the engine but when I was nailing it I was more interested in that lovely V8 howl lol.

I had the car 6 months and 6000 miles which the dealer must of done half of that,
Audi gave me a Full refund and wouldnt build me another car the same spec but in yellow incase they had to have that back as well.
I own 2 Body shops and have been painting new and up to 3 year old audis for main dealers for the last 20 years,
Audi wont admit they have a problem car but go on R8 chat and see have badly they are made,
50/60 K i still woudnt put up with it but a new car , I think not
