Sorry if this has been done to death before but for the last 2 weeks The gearbox has been so laggy in normal D drive Regardless of drive select mode selected. It’s noticeable when having to accelerate say from 2 nd to 3 rd Gear it’s like the gearbox is confused. This is using light throttle as well. Could this be a gearbox fault ? I know the ZF gearbox is generally laggy however I’ve only noticed it after the cold weather.

Mine is a bit more grumbly than usual right now too. I think it's a normal characteristic of the gearbox, but I'd say best to get it checked out and use the warranty if you really think there's something up
