I've asked the same question on another forum. I also have that radiator under my car. It is a fuel cooler.
Not all the fuel that goes to the engine is burned, some of it returns to the tank. This fuel is quite warm and needs to be cooled before entering the tank. That radiator does just that.

Some pics with mine:

How come some have it and some don't?

Some sort of sick lottery run by Audi? 1 in 10 cars blows up cos of warm fuel returning to the tank? Hmmmm, scuse me while I go and see If I'm one of the lucky ones...

I don't know why some have and some others don't. When my question was answered, I was told that only 2.0 TD engines have it, than came someone saying that the(some?) 1.9 TDI also has it, in the end, everybody agreed that this is a feature of TDI's...
