It is back with Audi after eating it's gearbox.......new A4 Avant SLine 2.0 TFSI STronic. Not the best of starts but these things happen. Audi assistance and the dealership I kangaroo hopped into this morning were first class and I now have a 17 A5 until mine is fixed. Parts on back order from Germany so not expected back until the new year. Was nice for those few hours I had it though!
