I've got to agree with Rob, you have the same symptoms I had @ 128K.  I
purchased my avant knowing the trans was on the way out.  Don't wait too
long to replace it or you run the risk of damaging your input shaft which is
a $400 component (my mistake).  My trans was rebuilt at German Transaxel of
America in Bend, OR (541.382.7723) and they come highly recommended from
many Audi folks in the Pacific NW.  Expect your rebuild to run from
$1200-$2200 depending on how many components need to be replaced.  I
considered a used trans, but there is so much time and $$ just to remove the
old one that I wanted a rebuild to last the life of the car.  You should
definitely replace all clutch components and CV boots while your in there.
The guy I spoke with at GTA sez we generally have durable transmissions, but
are prone to damage when modified engines get launched from 1st gear.  Best
of luck!

Mike O.
