If it is normal i would consider it poor build quality or someone in the lube shop got messy. Burning oil = bad unless it's a 2 stroke

Might be a worn gasket, leaking oil onto the exhaust and or engine. If you really like the car have it inspected and fixed before purchase.

Pop the hood & see if slight smoke coming from both sides of the engine. Very likely the valve cover gaskets need replaced. Only takes about an hour. Very common on the Audi's. Agree with Tom, have it checked out by an independent mechanic (not a big dealership).
