Final update: The starter was removed and tested bad. It has been replaced with a new Bosch replacement starter. The car is back together and I only have 4 bolts left over! They're all bumper bolts so I'm just sorting out which ones go where.

The beast is alive! It starts and runs under its own power again and I can't wait for the snow to start falling again.

Thanks you everyone for your help, it definitely helped me narrow down the cause of the problem and address it properly.

I took some pictures during the process, I was thinking of doing a write-up on how I tackled the job, but I am still having issues.

I forgot to tighten down a ground so it started three times but wouldn't start the fourth. This issue has been resolved now but along with it came some codes. I had to use a crappy U-scan device but it gave me the codes I need. My biggest concern or what I believe to be the cause of the current problem is a P0414 code and the description is Secondary Air Switching Valve A Circuit Short. All the other codes are "circuit low" codes. See attached images for all the codes.

Took it to Audi to have them diagnose the issue. $240 later, it turns out the motor mount is shorting out. I disconnected it for now and will replace with something else soon.

You replaced it with MT mounts right? I'm pretty sure they're solid filled, so they should have a dummy resistor inside it. You could probably hack it up and leave it disconnected, but the electrical connector connected to a resistor in series
