I just bought a 2001 Audi TT 4 with the 1.8 and 5 speed and have noticed that it's very easy to get into third gear vs first at a stop. I don't experience any grinding though. Could this be the shift fork you are talking about?
I bought the car yesterday and have put over 300 miles on it and can't wait to get back in for more!

It is a bad mechatronic unit. If you take it to the dealer they'll want to replace the entire transmission and mech unit. I'd advise against that. All you probably need is a new/rebuilt mechatronic box. Cost is about $2500 for a new one, or you have your existing one rebuilt - when I had mine done I found a place in Europe that would rebuild ( http://www.ecutesting.com/catalogue/audi_eculist.html?category=4054&model=447 ) but I never used them. Once you read about the unit it makes sense that it could be easily rebuilt.
