Re: S4 Hiccough. HELP!

I have the exact same year car with only 44K  and had the exact same thing
happen.  The fix was to replace the coil packs and spark plug boots.  It
needed only two of them but I replaced them all.  How to diagnose?  Well my
case I took it to the worst Audi dealer in the country and said fix it. 
After 5 months they did.  They owed me free repair though.  I did ask them
how they diagnosed this and they said that they swaped the coils from a good
S4.  So, unless you have a second set of coils, I am not sure how you would
diagnose.  Anyone else have ideas????
