Regarding the imminent head gasket and cam stripdown job, I'll be replacing
all the hydraulic lifters at the same time. Can anyone recommend any OEM
lifters, as I've had reports of many 'aftermarket' lifters rattling after
the first few thousand miles (hardly the desired result!)?

My research has shown that INA (LUK Group) probably produce them for Audi,
and possibly FEBI and Meyle? I was wondering if anyone had had any positive,
or negative experiences after installing any of these brands in this car?

I'd go for the genuine Audi if absolutely necessary, but I think that £20
each is a bit steep!
