    Sounds like incomplete fuel ignition, but could be caused by several different things. "Safe" is a difficult thing to determine.... on a scale of risk, I would say that it is relatively "safe" for you, but it may not do the car any favors. At most risk is likely the exhaust system due to fouling by unburned fuel. It is probably best to flatbed it there or a reputable Audi shop.

  • I took your advice and paid the tow instead of possibly causing serious damage....I'll post the findings.
    Thanks
