    Make sure the gearbox oil has been changed every 40k, I wouldn't touch it if this has been missed.

    More than likely its been done if it has a full Audi SH but check in the book anyway

    DSG's are good till they go wrong. It is very expensive to fix. just like the DPF and Clutch and flywheel on the B7 diesel
