    Drivetrain problem on S3

    My S3 has been bogging down in 2nd & 3rd for a brief moment in the morning before clearing after a few minutes. I put this down to a misfire as I'd had it before exactly the same and new plugs fixed it.

    Anyway, I fitted some new plugs and it remained the same. I had a new clutch and flywheel fitted about 1k miles since and it was fine immediately after fitting. I have the LOBA Motorsport single mass flywheel and sachs clutch by the way.

    Today I set off in the car and I turned off my street, into 3rd and pressed the accelerator and the car bogged down completely with the T/C light flashing. It did this a few more times after that. This is in the dry at 1/4 throttle by the way. Has anyone had anything similar to this? Surely it can't be the clutch with the T/C light flashing and it being so new. I don't have access to ramps until next week so anyone any ideas?

    Fixed the problem now. At least for now. I cleared all the error codes and it now runs perfectly. I think it was due to an ABS/Traction control sensor playing up
