    Well at least they've give you one of those A1's this time!

    If the tensioner loosened it is possible that the belt may have jumped teeth, which could mean anything from timing being out, to bent valves and damaged pistons, either way its covered under the Audi warranty but I wouldn't like the job lol. You'd have thought they would have had the sense to do some diagnostic work and take the head off to have a look, but I guess not eh, that would involve thinking...
