First, welcome to the forum - we are hopeful that you'll find answers and can contribute to your ownership experience here - we're a pretty knowledgeable group and willing to help. Second, sorry you're having an issue causing some frustrations - there are a few other notes on driveability, but not exactly like yours.
In my own car I notice the flat-spot even in 4th-6th, but also that the "kick-down" is a bit stiff, at least compared with my TT. But on push thru, the car shifts fine - although since it's a regular automatic (torque converter), it's not as crisp as the DSG (dual clutch) in my TT.
I'll aslo be trying a throttle aid called SprintBooster (see here SprintBooster Throttle Aid ) that should help throttle tip-in - as I have one on my S5 and like it a lot. It should arrive this week, and is an easy PlugNPlay.
Meanwhile take your in for a service check and have them scan for faults - perhaps something is really amiss - it doesn't sound normal and you should have the chance to get your car right. I'll check for any TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) that may be related and report back later this week...
