Not dead sure about a 2.0tfsi, but to fit a sports cat on an S3 the propshaft has to be dropped slightly. I would assume it's the same, as they are essentially the same underneath. You may have had mixed messages and this might be what they mean. It's not a big job or much to worry about as long as the car is on a ramp.

if you do, mark the drive shaft with tipex at the joint you undo or make sure you dont rotate it as it could be balanced.
