10000 0 My A5 developed a steering shimmy at ~5K miles. The Audi dealership failed to fix the problem with a road force tire balance at a previous visit. This time they replaced the tires and installed revised control arms with stiffer bushings 
27700 0 Lower front control arm ball joints developed squeaking sound when suspension was under load, such as going over a bump or turning a hard corner while parking. Parts were non-serviceable and were replaced under warranty with updated parts.
