Was thinking about going A4 B8 in a few months but the missus has kindly allowed me to extend my love for the Audi A3 and she will have the B8 instead. So we hope to get two used cars on finance in a few months with a good amount of part-exchange. Just wondering if the new s-tronic is any good? I had problems with a VW Polo 6R DSG (7 speed) in 2009. The gearbox used to make all sorts of whirring noises, thumps, judders and jolts. IT was in short... the worse auto box I had ever used. Dear Lord, I hope it is not the same box in the 8p3!
