      i know this has probably been asked a bunch of times,
      but how do you clear the service codes that show up on start up
      in the trip meter spot (1n 2)?

      What car?
      You mean the "SERVICE' reminder? I was told to ignore it,
      and checked - in the owner's manual it is described how to make it go away:
      To reset the display:
      Turn ignition OFF.
      Turn ignition ON while holding button 2 /on the right side/ down.
      Press button 1 until 'SERVICE' clears.
      Display should now show next service event.
      Do not reset it between service intervals, will result in incorrect display.
      Disconnecting the battery will not do the trick.

      The indicator and the intervals can be done with VAG-COM:
      Audi Service Interval Reminders

      Ross-Tech is not responsible for any damage or problems that may result from following these instructions. They are to be used at your own risk.
      Audi has included a Service Interval Reminder that includes oil mileage interval, the service mileage interval, and the service time interval. To reset the Service Reminders using VAG-COM:
      1998 and Newer:
      [17 - Instruments]
      [Adaptation - 10]
      Enter channel 02
      The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
      Enter the "New" value of 0 (zero)
      Note: It is normal for the display to show something like "--/--" instead of an actual distance/time to service after resetting until you have driven some distance.

      Pre-1998 models ... or if Channel 02 is not available:
      [17 - Instruments]
      [Adaptation - 10]
      Enter the correct channel from the list below in "Channel Number"
      The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
      Enter the "New" value of from the list below.
      Channel 05 should be the distance until the next Oil Service.
      It is in thousands of kilometers. Let's say you want the Oil
      Service light to come on in 5000 miles. That would be 8000 km.
      Put the value 8 into channel 05. The "standard value" used by the US
      dealers would be 12 (7500 miles).
      Channel 06 should be the distance until the next In-1 Service.
      Same units as above. Standard value would be 24 (15,000 miles).
      Channel 07 should be the time until the next In-1. In-1 lights
      up based on time or distance, whichever comes first. This is in
      10's of days. Standard value would be 36 for 360 days.
      Channel 08 would be time until the next In-2. In-2 is based
      strictly on time. Standard value is 72 for 720 days (about
      two years).
