    Where is the knock coming from? Gearbox/Clutch? Top end? Bottom end?

    Remove oil filler cap and shine torch in to have a look at the cam lobe, or remove the cam cover and check the follwers/tappets are all correct as I have heard stories of them falling off! Even a little capping has come on some cars!

    There's an engine on eBay for £1k. That will be the cheaper option especially as you already have 170kmiles on yours.
    By the time the mechanics have stripped yours to locate the problem then replaced all the relevant parts and then reassembled it'll cost you a lot more than a grand.

    I wouldn't know about the costs to repair, but don't think it would run too far into the hundreds, possibly cam removal, i'm not 100% certain.

    Can't you call out the AA if you have Home Start saying you have just started it and its noisy? Maybe they would come out and try to diagnose?

    When my AKE self destructed (albeit more spectacularly than yours), it was cheaper to pick up a secondhand unit (£1800+vat) than have a rebuild with new parts, for me at least.

    It will vary, from the symptoms you are describing - it would point to camshaft wear.
    If you can take off one of the rocker covers like Turkster has shown, it will reveal if the camshafts are worn or not.

    If your not comfortable doing this yourself, take it to an independent garage to inspect the wear for you.

    If it is the camshafts and you take the car to Audi, I would expect the job to be around or over the £2,000 mark.

    Personally, I would have the car taken to Chris (adamss24) - he knows these engines better than the back of his hand.
