Quick update on the issue...I test fitted 5 new coil packs this morning (the cheap Denso ones from Advance Auto that were previously in the car) and the car fired right up first try...Got home and put in the R8 red tops and they still won't it possible that the ECU adapted to the cheap coil packs and now will only run with that specific type?

I've never heard of a car adapting so much to a specific component like that, but now I'm wondering if a complete ECU reset will fix the problem. I tried touching the +/- terminals together to reset it that way but it didn't change anything. Maybe a full adaptation reset with VAGCOM?
