    Hi my name is Kahim and am from Leeds.

    Am looking to buy a Audi s3 8P Ibis white with s-tronic. Has anyone had any problems with s-tronic and what are the costs like repairing them when they need changing.

    Thank you :D

    The mechatronic units can go, which are £1500+ to replace.

    BUT, that's few and fair between. They are lovely to drive, just make sure the DSG oil is done every 40k.

    I've not heard of an S-Tronic gearbox failing on an S3 - has anyone else? I don't think it was available as an option until 2009, so most S3 S-Tronics will still be covered by the 3-year (transferable) Audi warranty.

    Assuming I pass the 3-year mark (next June for mine), I will be either extending the Audi warranty or seeking an alternative for peace of mind.

    I've not heard anything in Aus either. All the mechtronics failures are with the 7 speed "dry" gearbox i.e. not the one in the S3
