 Hi Mike,

 Hope all is well up there in Maine.

 Have experienced the same condition
 in my V8Q under the same conditions.
 In my case - it was not often fortunately.
 So I had not bothered - to chase the source.

 However in recalling other posts about 'similar'
 issues - most felt the most likely cause would
 be faulty ABS signals @ the wheel sensors.

 Remedied by cleaning and readjusting during installation
 Hopefully (cleaned rather than replaced) at Audi prices.

 Just occurred to me - You might try shutting off the ABS 
 System on the Dash and see if it makes a difference ??

 BTW .. How is KeyBank to work for?  Saw  Commercial 
 Realty Lending Position open that looked interesting ..)
