Audi... not known for reliability. cost too much to maintain. known one company they went to Audi car for their top management. Even under warranty period, some of their car spend at SC for warranty, issues, repair.

After 3 years of usage, they went to Mercedes cz of more reliable and they are now on 2nd cycles with Mercedes

Agree, i am helping my father's BMW e90 320d in maintenance. Even 3 series without much issue also require around 5k of maintenance budget a year, so if you went up to bigger SUV you need to budget more as a lot of parts is more rare and expensive compare to the common 3 series OTR. Even tires itself already cost few k just to replace, unless you willing to take risk picking up those cheap China tires.

Can share what the parts for up to rm3k per year? Tyre not included right?

Tire included. My maintenance include all the wear & tear.

Then really cheap. Similar to any Japan sedan. Replaced 18" tyre cost rm2.3k. EO Fully synthetic, Filter around 200 per 6 months. So rm2.3k + 200 + 200 for a year maintenance.

Tire i did not went for run flat so still can save around 30~40% of what you mentioned.
EO fully synthetic 5W-40 5.3 liter every 6 months (I use premium European oil that meet BMW LL-04 spec.) + oil Filter around 4xx per 6 months.
Sometime some leak or part already wear so budget another 1~2k for parts maintenance/change.
5k per year is still acceptable and maybe got some savings for others mod or upgrade.

if u wanna safe more, 5w40 shell helix tesco/giant around rm99 per 4L, ori. Been discussed more on the other thread. for my car, still follow 0w20, so not many brand available vs 5w40/ 5w30.
no comments on leaking, so far so good but ok to allocate some fund for it

An uncle who used to work with one of the big 3rd party workshop which does service and parts for conti cars advised to stay away from recond or out of warranty Audi if possible (among the 3 brands)

mercedes is ok pretty reliable. based on my family w212 E250 2015. after warranty, service it outside also similar price relatively to japan car. higher a bit for Fully Syn EO as it needs more EO than most Japan sedan.
