    S-Tronic

    Hi Guys and Gals, not posted for a little while but must say i am 100% loving my RS3 its seriously the best car i've owned bar none such an all rounder and ticks all the boxes for me. Just a quick one on the S-Tronic gearbox, ive noticed when going up the box in manual, sport or drive whether pushing it hard or driving like miss DAISY it is flawless so so smooth, however when coming down the box for example coming to a set of lights, i've noticed a small clunk from underneath the car, this happens from 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st, its not a really loud clunk but with the stereo off it is noticeable, its probably just the way the transmission is and me being a little paranoid !! Has anyone else who has had their machine a bit longer than me heard this and is this normal, i ask this because i had the 6speed S-Tronic in my TTs before and didn't notice it thanks for replies in advance

    I have noticed a small clunk from 2nd to 1st.
    you really have to be trying to notice it though.
    it really does make the car this transmission.
    seamless power, epic launches and stress free in traffic.

    I haven't got my RS3 yet.. long wait ahead ... but, my a3 2.0tfsi quattro does it slightly.. i would imagine this is accentuated on the RS3 - one journalist commented about noise from the diffs on full lock, saying it was "tightly wound" whatever that means?!
    Red is the colour..

    Ive noticed that. Very evident when slowing down and turning into drive and when stightly on/off gas putting it in the garage.
    Doesn't sound nice but guess its normal :-)
