    IIRC this only works on facelift models 99 on so should be OK on your 2000, I know it doesn't work on my 97 A4 which has to be done via VAGCOM:

    1. Insert your key into the ignition.
    2. Push in the odometer reset button, hold it in, and turn the key to the first click.
    3. The display should read either "oil" or "service" if it does not, repeat steps #1 and #2.
    4. To reset, pull out your instrument light dimmer button at the bottom of the tachometer.
    5. Turn the ignition to the off position. When the ignition is turned back on, the display should be back to the trip odometer.

    Can't verify the above as working, but reliably informed it is the correct sequence for facelift B5's. Similar procedure worked a treat on our B6, which was from the same source. You can obviously do it via VAGCOM on any vehicle.
