I own a 2011 RS5. Having done just 40,000, almost all motorway miles, the Cats have apparently failed. Cats should last 10+ years/life of the car and manage in excess of 100,000 miles. Audi have quoted 4K+ for the repair. This comes after replacing the Cam Shaft sensors which failed 2 weeks prior. Has anyone one else experienced anything similar? Audi have been less than impressive so my advice is stay well clear.
£4k for half a day's labour? Have you asked for a breakdown of costs?
