    Make sure the gearbox oil has been changed every 40k, I wouldn't touch it if this has been missed.

    More than likely its been done if it has a full Audi SH but check in the book anyway ;)

    DSG's are good till they go wrong. It is very expensive to fix. just like the DPF and Clutch and flywheel on the B7 diesel
