I had the same type of rattle on my TQ a year & a half ago.  Two Audi dealers &
three transmission specialists told me that the synchro's in the tranny were
shot, better drop the trans & put in a new one.  $3,000 out the door.  Took it
to a place in No. VA, they put in a new catalytic converter, suddenly my
synchro's were all better.  $500 out the door.  YMMV.
