A few things to look at such as the crank sensor, MAF sensor, Check the pump pressure after the car is up to temp to see if you are getting the proper fuel pressure.

You can go down this long road of electrical diagnosis and financial vulnerability, or you can just sell the old Audi and get something more reliable-
