Owning an 01 2.7t A6 with tip, I am familiar with your problem.  I have 
been able to virtually eliminate it by doing the 00032 recode, 
installing a giac tip chip, and using a DJ tiptronic ecu.  I'm not sure 
if the 4.2 uses the same tiptronic ECU's, but in the 2.7t the DJ box is 
by FAR the best tiptronic ecu in terms of minimal lag and no downshift 
clunkiness.  I can't remember where, but there is an online petition for 
class action suit regarding these transmission issues, as they are 
present from the drive off the showroom floor and not induced by any 
kind of driving shenanigans or tomfoolery.  I do have backup, unchipped 
DJ box if you determine it would work in your car, I could loan it to 
you for testing.
