I've had this with an A4 2005 1.8 convertible. It was a £50 fix - one of the coils had snapped. Over the next 20 months 2 other - a known Audi porblem I am told. Am thinking of pre-emptively getting the last one replaced. The new coils are apparently better.

Guaranteed ignition coil failure. Take to your local centre as they are covered for 5 years/100,000 miles due to high failure rate.

These are extremely high maintanance vehicles. is the engine lite flashing or on solid? 1.8turbo? would suspect misfires in the engine. (scan for codes) spark plugs, ign. coils and poss ignition module are the first things that come to mind. euro's are fun to drive; nothing like it, however it does come with a price. everything seems to be over-engineered. just my opinion and experience.

    wanted to add the fact that constant misfires in the engine will likely ruin cat converter(s) $$$

Jerking at acceleration and braking! no engine lights what could it be.

Leave the car at some shop or dealer,don't use it like that

If a shop doesn't seem to find things, there usually are
several reasons why

Try another more capable shop & spend some time
there,so you both understand the time to be applied
to diagnosing,your costs & the shop has to welcome
you into the service bay & prove they have the technology,
tools & personel to work on your car problems

Sounds like your ignition coils are going on you... but fortunately Audi has a voluntary recall for these on your car model, and will replace them for you free of charge. Contact your local Audi dealer, and they should take care of this for you!

The car began to shake and the check engine light started to flash. The engine seemed to be dying!

as you describe it the exact same thing happened to me.  It was nothing but my sparkplugs I have an Audi A4 T1.13 2004 and they are so simple to change.  I know nothing about cars and I changed all four with my bare hands no tools needed.  Once I changed them the car was totally back to normal.
