    hi, i have a weird problem with my car, in 4th gear at around 50mph, if i dont have my foot on either the gas or brake, the gearbox will vibrate a fair bit, but if i have gas or brake pedal depressed, then the gearbox lever doesnt shake.

    it doesnt happen in 3rd or 5th. its a '99 a3 1.8 t sport.

    anyone know what it could be? i think the tyres will need recalibrating at some point, but that wouldnt be related to the gearbox lever problem, would it??

    Would check all your gearbox mounts and engine..then move on to the linkage at the gearbox see if there is anything lose there
