I like their logic.  If the computer doesn't fix it, there's nothing wrong?

This clearly deviates from the maintenance instructions given by Audi.  They 
should be prepared to try another computer to see if it fixes the problem and 
not force you to buy it.  Why not give Audi of America a call and ask for a 
list of main dealers that _do_ properly implement Audi's service procedures?
