    Just bought an a3 turbo, and when accelerating it occasionally hesitates quite badly, yet if I'm in 5th on the motorway and accelerate, it's fine.
    Any ideas on what it could be?

    Could be a coilpack, get it scanned with vcds to see if there are any faults.

    Any other information? Or are you expecting us to fault find this with hopes and dreams?

    -

    Have the vehicle plugged in and scanned for fault codes, report back then and we'll do our best to help. Without a fault code nobody can accurately give you any opinion.

    It could be anything from a crap fuel to a full turbo rebuild from the information you've given so far.
