Sometimes, not all the time, when I go start my car it turns over and starts for a second then dies out. It will do this for a few times then finally start. If I take the key completely out then put it back in and try starting it, the car starts right up. ANY IDEAS?

sounds like your immobilizer is acting up...either your key battery is low, or your instrument cluster/ignition switch isn't reading the key right....suggest getting somebody with Vag-Com to do a scan to see if any codes are coming back, and seeing about replacing your key battery.
