    Mine does about 50% of gear changes. Previous owner said he had audi and a indipentant garage look at it and they said nothing wrong.

    Just before a gear change i get a slight hum/drone, gear changes over and hum stops untill next change over.

    Im sending it to Audi tomorrow to see what they say.

    Is it normal?

    Just before i give audi 50 quid to say yay or nay!

    on my S4 there isn't any noise at all when the gears change. is yours a paddle shift or just the gear stick in the middle?
