Actually once,  It actually happened to me while i was on a trip.   I 
was driving from boston -> san antonio, and somewhere in virgina my trip 
computer, trip mileage, and radio reset.   That was at about 12k miles... 

When i reached texas, i took my car to cavender audi service and they 
looked into it but did not find any problems.    

It only happened the one time, and I have not seen the problem since. I 
have 36k on my 2001.5. 

I will note that the one problem that did keep popping up was my radio 
blanking out.    I will be driving along and poof it turns off and back 
on again.   Its not a big deal, unless im listening to a cd in the dash, 
where it restarts playing the cd from the beginning.     Audi has 
replaced Bose head unit 4 times, and i have finaly given up.. 

Funny thing, since I came out of the factory warranty the problem has
