    Angry Crunch go my gears

    Well, driving on the motorway today I notice that there is a "crunch" sound coming from the 4th,5th and 6th Gear. As soon as you engage the gear then release the clutch you hear they gears crunching together. Anyone else had this with their 2.0TFSI - I read a number of reviews on whatcar site where customers complain about this appears to be synchromesh (don't know if spelt correct) problem. Does this mean new box ? Car goes in next Tuesday....

    Nope wouldn't say you need a new gear box, the synchromesh just needs replacing as it may have worn down, normally on older cars it just needs replacing. Although it is very odd that it is doing it on such a new model.
