steering wheel vibration under hard acceleration audi a6 quattro

Hi there, I have been to an audi specialist to diagnose vibration in the cabin and through the steering wheel under sudden hard acceleration. They could not reproduce it.
The vibration is happening more and more frequently.
- I have had all the wheels balanced. . - I have replaced a slightly damaged tyre. - The rear brake calipers bind now and again
Still get this whether accerlerating in a straight line or cornering. Anybody got any ideas re: next steps? Many thanks John

Well, I'd *start* by getting out the dial caliper and checking the front brake rotors for run-out - or just replace them outright unless they're quite new...

Hi, Thanks I'll add this into the collection of possibilities for when I go to a mechanic.

Oh and don't forget about the exhaust hitting some of the body during hard acceleration and it might also be affected by how much weight is in the vehicle!

I have a similar vibration problem with my A6 4.2. Local dealer has diagnosed fragmented catalyst monoliths, and I seem to remember he wants about 1,600 to replace them.
