    at a rough guess i would look at the idle control valve as you are loading the engine at low revs and it is not responding fast enough thus stalling

    Hi bud new to this forum, not sure what's going on, but anyway I had a 2.8 a4 model that did the same, it turned out to be the brake pipes on the front that were fitted 4 years earlier had got a kink in them somehow and when on full lock it basically put 1 front break on which was enough to stop the car at low revs, so if you've had any break work done over the last year or two I would have a look at them just on the off chance as mine failed going in to an island at around 50mph, down the box real quick I was !!!!!!!!!!!!! PS these were steel braided lines that failed
