    Change the oil, it's over due. Should be done every 40K or that's what my service book used to say if i remember correctly.

    Yes as said dsg service is well overdue. Get it done asap and that might sort things out :)

    Mine does this every now and then. But it could well just be a characteristic of the box?
    It's only when the box is in too high a gear than it should be so it's a low rpm change into a lower gear. A manual would do the same if you changed at 1000rpm.
