The code you have matches the fault that is occuring and since the sensors did not correct this issue here and the most common fault is the timing components being damaged or the timing chain has jumped needing replaced.This is most common for this fault here on this model unfortunately and can be an expensive repair to repair this issue.Usually for a 2007 model Audi wont help with the costs for repair since it is several years out of warranty already.You can try and contact Audi customer support to see for sure but usually they wont help on this here.It will have to be inspected and repaired further.

I apologize for the delay.
The timing components failing can be a common issue although it isnt something I see all the time but it very possible.Audi will always want you to use dealer technicians as they cannot communicate with outside sources and they have had issues before with outside sources so they always need to have a dealer look into the issue so they can speak to the dealer on the diagnosis and repair.It isnt anything against where you did take it to but the fact that they need factory trained technicians at a dealer to look into this further.
Some engines were designed where the complete assembly needs removed for repair.I have run across this not only with this manufacturer but others as well for some simple repairs like having to pull the engine and transmission to replace an engine oil pan gasket on a GM model as well as removing the complete intake to replace a starter,etc.The designs arent the greatest in some cases.
The dealer will usually charge anywhere from an hour to two hours to diagnose the fault.You can also ask if they will only diagnose up to a certain fee so they dont over charge you but they may not be able to fully diagnose up to the fee you set.
Once they diagnose it and find out it is timing related then you and the dealer can work with Audi to see if they will help or cover any repair costs.
Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help.
