     In my sample size of one, the following happened:  My automatic 
     transmission (92 100 CSQW) was replaced at just over 50K miles (under 
     warranty).  The general feeling of the service guys at the dealer was 
     that they had seen some problems with some front-wheel drive Audi 
     automatics, but very little problem with the Q's.  I don't believe 
     that it is the same transmission as the V8Q.
