The 01E 6 speed from the 2001 A4Q has a different Ring & Pinion ratio from
most of the other Audi Quattro cars.  This is probably a code FRE transmission,
and has a 35/8 (4.375 ratio) R&P.  Most other 6 speed cars have a 37/9 (4.11 ratio) 
R&P.  I don't know without looking at ETKA what is in the '96 A4Q 12V.

My 01E gearbox pages have been updated to include some of the later European 01E 
6 speed info, including the A4 notes above:
