someone who has idea how to remove rounded screws?
Use something like this (with a torque wrench)

I use them once in a year or two. However, when I need them, they are invaluable

Use a extractor drill bit
I've used extractor drill bits with varying success. It can be difficult to get them bite into the metal. I find tools like Matco to be much easier to apply higher torque and drive into the metal.
(Disclaimer, I am an amateur, and UltimatePD is not :))

If you have torx bits, find one that almost fits, slightly larger then the hole. You are going to have to hammer it in. The points of the bit will bite into the screw and you should be able to get it out. Extractors are always my first choice, but they don't always work in the space provided, so you need to get crafty.

These were originally one-way (IN) fasteners, but once you have them out, Audi has a nice little spare screw kit to help reassemble the whole caboodle : 8J0 898 011 MSRP: ~ USD12
