    S6 gearbox jerk in in 1st - bad news?

    I've seen a car for sale I quite fancy, but the seller says it jerks in 1st. Whether that's changing into or out of, it doesn't say.

    I've had a 4.2 A6 previously, so am well aware of the documented issues with V8 C5's and their boxes, but am unsure if this is a symptom of a knackered box or not.

    Have you got acces to vcds? it may be worth doing a throttle adaptation and a gearbox reset.

    I would just look for a manual one, unless you're prepared to pay £1200 on a gearbox rebuild !
