Maybe it's time for a new filter. Can't be all that spendy.

The problem with the ignition switch on your wife's A6 sounds like the 
common ignition switch cracking. The switch housing cracks and the key no 
longer returns from the start position. If you don't notice, you end up 
like I did with a dead starter (which really sucks!!). Good thing you got 
the switch replaced.
