Auto or manual? When you say it "sounded like it was flooding after first gear," does that mean before or after the car was in 2nd? What did the car do? Did it not respond when you applied more gas? We can't be sure whether turbo lag is a problem, but I'm pretty sure we can rule out turbo misfiring.
EDIT: I'm on Tapatalk... did I just miss the mention of "Tiptronic" before, or was that added in after the fact? I'm at a loss. I think you're probably in a better position to say what happened than anyone else. So it was between flooding & redlining? Uhhhm...
