I am prepared to wait another while. You require more information. I was laid to believe that the problem is connected in some way to the automatic/tiptronic transmission.I had the transmission ECU professionally tested and confirmed to be Ok. The transmission oil and strainer was replaced as it was thought that fine metal particles present in the oil might be causing the problem.
In my opinion your expert would have to be familuar with this transmission system.
As regards XXXXX XXXXX as me questions and I will try to provide more info.

I had the neutral safety switch replaced with a new one, parts and labour cost in the region of £220. Audi refer to it as this but it is the same as the range start inhibitor switch that you refered to.
Glad to say it has totally cured the problem with starting, but it wasn't a simple straight forward job, it is located in an ackward place a few other components had to be removed to excess it.
