    I guess you know by now, but for me I used a trolly jack on the rear diff (with a bit of wood to protect the fins) and then took the platic jack points off and put my axle stands in place there as they have some reinforcement box section there. The front was a right pita to safely jack up, I need to find a better alternative.

    For a trolley jack on the diff? as far as I can tell it is ok with some wood between the jack and the diff, but I'm sure someone better educated on the Audi may have a more valuable input.
    The section where the standard jack goes just unclips and you can see there is reinforcements in that section so I was happy to put my axlestands on there.
    I had checked on other audi forums first and using the diff was an answer which came back as ok. I found it so akward knownig where is safe due to all the plastic on the underside of the car!
