Sorry to hear of your problems.  We feel your pain. I'm no expert here
 (and there's surely some excellent reason why my suggestion is worthless),
 but  I  would seriously consider trying to find a broken 5kQ and transplanting 
your  good parts (engine, ancillaries, interior,  etc.)  The initial outlay 
would likely be 
more, but look what you'd end up with. I would question the life expectancy
of a used slushbox in this application.

You think Mobil 1 and Militec can work miracles?  I think the blame for the
transmission failure is clearly noted in your signature block:

It's obviously the AudiSport badge.
