Actually most Bosch catalogs ALSO list the wrong part number!!!
per http://www.sjmautotechnik.com/20vboost.html#rotor

" The Bosch catalog shows the INCORRECT distributor rotor (Bosch 04170 or the 1 234 332 350 R1) for this 20V Turbo application. This Bosch 04170 (1 234 332 350 R1) rotor has a wider electrode tip measuring 0.710 inches (~18mm). The Audi part number for this INCORRECT"

Scott Mockry can source the CORRECT one....
