Depending if you are FWD or 4Mo, there are kits to replace the sloppy shifter and linkage. Can you shift easily into 2nd from a stop? If not, it's not just the linkage, but maybe a clutch issue.

Since you list 6sp, I expect you have the 01E trans, either in FWD or 4Mo. That trans has a known issue with the 1-2 shift fork and it can prevent shifting into those gears. I would have a qualified shop inspect it before spending any money on parts. By qualified, I suggest a shop that knows Audis, as this trans is common on the B5 Audi S4.

A 5 speed box can be fitted.

It looks like you might have a clutch problem
Are you pushing the clutch all the way to the floor ?
