Have a Audi A5 Automatic and have noticed that when I pull of some times it doesn't deliver power straight away but then revs hard and delivers it suddenly. Feels Like a slipping clutch.

My thoughts were possibly the torque converter? But not up on automatics so any ideas and likely cost to fix?

Not a torque converter, Audi uses the VAG group DSG.  A5 gearbox problems are well known just google it to see.

DSG moving off is an issue especially with start-go switched on. Also if you didn't get the oil changed at 40K you could be heading for major expense.
