Try a brand new set of spark plugs, especially if you have the fancy 
(expen$ive) four-electrode "official" Bosch/Audi plugs.

Autolite provides a perfect replacement for these, they are standard 
single electrode plugs that cost about a buck each at FLAPS.

I had precisely the same problem - everything checked out, had gas, 
spark, compression, no codes, but NO start. Installed the low-tech, 
old fashioned, stone age, steam powered Autolites and VROOOOMMMM!!!!!
