    Sounds like it could be crank sensor gone, also check your fuses for fuel pump.

    Had the same problem with mine, 2 week's ago it was the crank speed sensor. Which seems to be a common problem with the car's.
    I also wrote a thread on here, and the people on here were really good.

    1st step is to order a vagcom lead from ebay there about 10, that will come with software that will plug from your laptop to your car via usb and it will run a diagnostic on the car and come up with fault codes that relate to the problem, just to make sure of the problem before changing everything on your car and to save you money.

    Its alot cheaper than going to audi, but can take some time waiting for it to be delivered and getting it running on your pc/laptop properly.
    Once you have it up and running and have found out the fault codes post them on here and most people on here will tell you the problem straight away.

    I'll try and put a link to mine thread from a few weeks back, it might help.

    Cut out at traffic lights and won't start again..please help!!
