I managed to find something in the back of the car above the back seats. I removed the panel above the back window and there is a 3" x 8" black part that is attatched to three wires which presumably run up to the radio and maybe a ground wire. It attaches to the antenna that runs through the back window with metal leads. It is easy to remove both the panel and the part.
I fiddled with it a while and the radio reception goes in and out. It has a circuit board underneath and chips/resistors, etc. Maybe this is one of the "boosters". The replacement part from the dealer is $250 which is ridiculous. It is also a poor design to place this part directly under the black part of the back window which probably gets incredibly hot in the summertime. My guess is the heat fries these parts up good. My guess is the Germans don't have 100 degree heat.
I bit the bullet and ordered this part to see if it solves the problem. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Very easy - the car is designed to have these parts as being removable for the timing belt service. Opening the car is called the "service position" and involves taking these parts nearly off the car. Use the link below (it's a link to a DIY procedure for doing the timing belt on the car) - it'll show you what to do in order to remove the front clip of the car and remove the core support and radiator.

is it a 1.8 turbo or 2.8 V6 or 2.7 biturbo V6 ? on most models what you will be looking for is a 3 letter code like ATQ or APW and is normally on a sticker on the timing belt cover, it is also stamped into the engine on a ledge up high. if no luck there check the owners manual, around the 3rd page there will be a sticker that was put in the book during predelivery inspection this sticker is about 3 inches by 3 inches and filled with id codes for almost everything. If the pdi wasn't done right another copy of the same sticker will be under or next to the spare tire in the spare tire well.

Not sure if they've changed it but this is what i do for my 99 a4
First remove the screw in the handle pull, it should be next to where your fingers go.
Pull down on the black piece of plastic and remove the screw form the door
Then remove the screws on either end of the door, one near the door jam on top and one near the other side, same place.
Finally pull up then out and the door panel should come out
Hope that helps

Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.
