It's an odd occurance but it sounds like the hydraulic fluid in the clutch lined may have boiled. it's usually okay once it's cooled down, but if the pedal feels weird you may want to bleed your line.

2000 A4: notchy gear change when the engine is hot

Check the gearbox oil - has this been changed (with the wrong grade) just before the problem started ? May also be too little oil, from a small leak - which will get very thin when then inevitably overheating. Best to change the gearbox oil, note if lots of sludge or debris comes out (or is attached to the drain plug). If oil is the problem, total siezure may be just down the road.

Low gears wont slide into gear when in traffic jams or hot.

Sounds like you do need a clutch adjustment.Do you have a hydraulic clutch?Check beside the brake master cylinder and look for a SMALLER size master cylinder which may be low on fluid.(PUT ONLY BRAKE FLUID IN TO FILL IT).Hopefully it is just low and the brake fluid fill will restore your clutch adjustment.

Can barely change down to second gear on Land Rover Discovery

have oil level checked ,then when driving double the clutch as it sounds like a baulk ring,caused by hammering it into gear whilst going too fast trying to be a boy racer jeremy clarkson prodigy.second gear shouldnt be engaged whilst coming down the box at anything much over 20mph.expensive repair but driving with patience and a good driving technique it should last forever.
