I think 100-150k is the sweet spot for catastrophic failure! However, there are those who are getting 200k from a gearbox. The one on my S8 went at 112k (and then again at 118k less than 3 years later and 3 months after I got it, do NOT go to Driver Transmissions in Birmingham)

I believe Audi were replacing them under warranty as early as 40k

2002 D2 S8 - Avus Silver, Valcona red leather, Dark Myrtle wood inserts, Heated rear seats, Heated windscreen, Auto dim rear view mirror, Bose, Xenon Plus, Servotronic, Extended leather, Heat & UV Reflective glass & Ski hatch. Gearbox went bang but she's sleeping safely away.
