    Audi A3 2.0 fsi automatic gearbox fault

    yes, dont take it to Audi, there rip off merchants. take it to a local automatic gearbox specialist, they'll fix the problem. audi have produced this gearbox in a terrible state, theyre not bothered though theyre more interested in promoting their R8. Anyway it cost me £ 1400 to fix. let us know...

    audi a3 auto problems?
