    This problem started 2 days ago where I randomly experienced power loss whilst accelerating. When going from 1st to 2nd gear, there was a loud thud that you could feel in the car and the car wouldn't accelerate for a few seconds and was slowing down, the revs didn't go up either so the car wasn't in neutral. After this it accelerated normally and the car drove a further 20 mins without any issues. Then earlier today I again experienced random power loss when driving. On the DIS I noticed when the car stopped accelerating it said "D " and then after a couple of seconds it changed to "D3" as the car started accelerating again. This time I wasn't sure if the car was in 3rd gear before the power loss started or if it was in 2nd changing to 3rd.

    There are no fault codes but I'm a bit worried about this happening at the wrong moment and causing an accident e.g. if it happens when entering/leaving a junction or on a roundabout. I've got the 7 speed dry clutch gearbox btw. Any help would be really appreciated!

    I've found a video where somebody managed to film the same issue i'm having, but theres seems to more erratic and worse than mine currently


    any of you guys know what it could be, since theres no fault code I dont see the point in taking it to Audi just yet

    Was the DSG oil and filter changed at 40000? Very necessary.

    no, i've got the dry clutch gearbox which is sealed for life and doesn't require an oil change according to audi
    the car has done 38400 miles anyway btw
