    6 speed on the A8 4.2 TDI. I gave the car some abuse today on the way home. Nothing major, just a spirited drive home. Few roundabouts so some kickdowns and full throttle shifts. Had the car in S on the box. Got home and jesus did it stink like clutch.

    Should i be worried??

    Box is always silky smooth and you cant ever feel it change up / down unless its cold.

    It doesn't have a clutch.

    Were you heavy on the brakes? Or could just be the tyres are über warm. Have had it a few times :p
