    Are we talking about a manual or DSG gearbox. I have a DSG and get no loss of power if I'm using D, S or tiptronic.

    Did you bounce off the rev limiter before changing to 4th? Can that mess with things as the power is cut to prevent over revving?

    If it happens consistently everytime, there is defo something wrong. Take it to the dealer.

    I rarely go beyond 3000-3500rpm. But when I do, I have no such hesitation.

    Admittedly, on Sunday I noticed a very slight hesitation when changing up (couple of tenths of a second), but I but that down to the cold engine and very wet atmosphere. I'll see whether it plays up again in normal conditions.
