Our new purchase is great apart from the issue with trying to get it into 1st gear when car is in motion. All other gears fine and it goes in if you double clutch but nowhere near as slick as my A3 Gearbox which has done 65k.
Read alot of stuff on here about it since picking the car up before Xmas so it's going back to Dealers in next week or 2 and they are going to look at it. Car has only done 17k so hoping alignment is the issue as wear or oil shouldn't be I wouldn't have thougt.
Had it not been for the info found on this forum I would have probably put up with it but as it seems to be common, and more importantly curable I thought I would get them to sort it out.
Apart from this minor annoyance the A4 is a great addition.
I will update when diagnosis is made and what the outcome was.
