    I know these are my first posts but information is everything with a forum.

    So here goes post 2!

    My auto gearbox is pretty broken! When you first get into the car when its cold you can click up and down P R N D S without any problems. as soon as it warms up R is skipped over and it goes back into P. Then all the lights flash on and off of the dash. Reverse lights and parking beepers also fail when warm.

    It also jumps from Drive to Sport under any load, see the Blackberry quality video below.


    The car is booked into a specialist for a new gearbox ECU on friday 15th Jan so i will let you know how it goes! Getting a new temperature sender too as the word on the street is that this is linked to the traction control computer making it kick in all the time.

    Good luck with this mate...hope it sorts everything out...being a 2.5 multi driver myself i'm afraid i drive round with this constant niggle in the back of my head just waiting for something to go which is such a shame because overall it is the best auto box i have ever driven :)
