My key won't go all the way into the ignition switch. It feels like something just blocks it and it can't go in.

Anyone else ever have this problem, if so what should I do?

You probably have your steering wheel locked. Just turn the wheel side to side and slip it in (the key, that is).

If it's not that, don't know what to tell you.

Ahh, yes. Forgot about that. Happened to me too. You should be able to get that replaced at Audi under the recall. If not, it's like $20.
