here is the relevant part number from audi UK The new Q3 tailgate strut will be available to order from mid-end of June 2012.

Currently, the part is priced at around £24.71 inc VAT and we are anticipating similar pricing for the new strut, when this
becomes available.

The part number you require is 8U0 827 552B.

hope this helps

hi guys it took some time but these struts are now available from the audi dealerships

I got quoted £31-75 each from Dundee Audi plus fitting. What discount did you get?
as i said in my post 20% discountyou only need a small straght screwdriver and some one to support the tailgate while you change them just put the screwdriver in the spring clip to release the pressure and hit the strut with your hand knocking it away from the body , replace one strut at a time one strut is NOT strong enought to support the tailgate so be careful .
