I don't want to scare you, but this is the symptom my car was exhibiting
right before I had the tranny replaced.

There is an ad in Hemmings Motor News (saw it yesterday) that advertises a
place that has rebuilt trannys for Audis, and specifically mentions the
200q20v. I don't recall the name, but pick up Hemmings and look in the Audi
Cars and Audi Parts section.
