I smell BS. I'm getting my gearbox service done in a week or so and was told to have the car there as early as possible as the car has to cool so they can get an accurate oil level. SO they must be able to check some how.

Happy to be proved wrong though.

What did I miss??

You just wanted the gearbox oil level looked at and now a 5k bill?

What faults have you got that you wanted the oil level looked at?

sometime when its cold i get a little thump when it comes to a stop .. when it drops from 2nd down to first but it only does it when the car is cold so i thought it might be a low atp level

OK. not heard of that fault, hopefully somebody else on here has. Might be time to get a warranty on the box and then just in case after 4 months or so it turns nasty you are covered.
