    OK, a bit more info would help, when does this happen, when the car is idling, all the time, when you are driving?

    Has the car had any mods done to it, have you had the car scanned for any fault codes, if not, see if you can get that done first, as that could identify the issue straightaway for you.

    That sounds like a throttle body issue to me.

    Does taking the battery off for 30 mins not reset it?

    Sounds like it could be carbon build up on the throttle body, I had this on my old A4, do the revs increase when you're in gear and then release the clutch to change gear? If I recall it was about a £100 job to fix

    Take the throttle body off and get to work with a can of carb cleaner and a cloth and get it as clean as you can make sure you open the butterfly to get it all clean and then refit it
    There is no real need to realign with VAGCOM as it will realign itself after 30mins or so of driving
    Also check for vacuum leaks and such as these can cause rev bounce
