Dogparkguy, it's not as simple as that. To some degree it will depend on your definition of quality, but a TSB doesn't necessarily directly correlate w/ a "problem". Let's also keep in mind that Audis are packed with more tech and more luxury (more to go wrong). The QC standards used to build VW and Audi brands both run under standards such as VDA, ISO 16949, and the VW Formel-Q (in-house standard). They're all very strict standards. I know - I was project manager for the implementation of a quality mgmt system that allowed our company to supply Audi with an engineered wood veneer (Oak Beaufort). The veneer was debuted on the A7.

You also have to account for the demographic, the greater likelihood of complaints from consumers spending $10k to $20k more than a VW, etc.

If you were to look only at subsystem warranty repairs that are common between VW and Audi cars (2.0 TDI or TSI), you'd find they're very similar.
