    Do you have the part numbers? I want to see if you have VW interchange pistons like Charles at Humble Mechanic mentioned, or if Audi has now their own part numbers and what the nature of the pistons are. The problem is there are at least two problems with the pistons:
    -oil control rings

    It appears that there are several revisions floating around that either deal with the dimensions, but use the obsolete oil ring design, may have unchanged dimensions, but fix the oil ring issue, or both. Then there are variations of all with different wrist pins (typically the VW pistons require the new connecting rods).

    Then comes the fact that some rebuilders are refurbishing take-out pistons and modifying them for new oil control rings.
