Audi TT's only take G12 coolant (vw/audi propriatary formula) you can add some distilled water to the water level to prevent the light from coming on, but as you explained you keep adding fluid (of some kind) and the warning like returns. that's a little evident that you have a leak somewhere.
put some paper towels or something under your car when you park it for the evening. when you come out the next day, pull the car away from the spot and look at the paper towels. if they have orange drops, that's your G12 coolant leaking. like McMuff460 said, check all the clamps/hoses for signs of the leak. if you don't find anything i reccomend taking it to a shop for them to check out. Your water pump might be on it's way out.
Don't ever put any other fluid other than G12 coolant and distilled water into your car's coolant system. It will cause some major issues with seals, leaks, and cooling performance.

Are you sure that the thermostat is opening? If you let the car run to operating temp, does it get hotter and then suddenly cool down? If so, the thermostat is sticking and needs to be replaced. Put your hand on the radiator hose while the engine is warm. Use a shop towel that is wrapped in a way that it won't get caught in the fan to grip the hose. If the engine is at operating temp and you can't squeeze the hose much that is another sign that the thermostat is sticking. If the hose compresses, the coolant is moving through the thermostat.

Most traction systems have sensors at each wheel. These detect wheel spin (can be a loose connection, broken wire, dirty sensor) The ABS won't work for the same reason but your brakes will work fine without ABS. (as long as brake fluid is full) The expansion bottle should have some coolant in it as well as the radiator. My experience is the bottle has a low level sensor that can get dirty ( If it was full) But you seem to be losing coolant? Is the lid on tight? Do you ever see coolant on the ground or in the engine bay? Sorry that's a mystery from here. Hopefully it is not disappearing in your engine. That would be a bad head gasket!

On the Owner's Manual there's a procedure you have to follow to bleed the air in the cooling system, until you bleed the system for air, the low coolant light will come on every time.
The process is rather simple and quick, all you need is a flat head screw driver.
DO NOT OPEN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHEN HOT.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.
