    Hi all,

    Just a heads up, I've been moaning about my S-tronic box for some time and finally, Audi have released a software update for MY17/18 S3's... so just a heads up that if you are having issues with jerky changes or judder from pulling away, this update should fix it.

    I'll get the update reference when the cars back next week. (They're also replacing my drivers seat and passenger seat back because they squeak lol).

    Interested to here how u get on with that at Stirling Audi. I just thought this was a characteristic of the DSG box

    Spotted your good lady in Stirling today again around 4ish heading out the town.
    5 cars behind her was an RS3 also in Ara blue.

    Interesting you mentioned this, I cancelled my appointment for Audi to look at my car for this intermittent juddering due to work commitments last week. I’ll get it rebooked once I hear about the reference number for the update, thanks :grinning:

    What were the symptoms you had? Mine seems to have a snatchy change when going into 3rd (doesn't matter if its an upshift or a downshift)

    I had jerky changes and juddering when pulling away. Almost like if you let of the clutch too quick if it was a manual.

    Mine just seems to be doing this as well. It seems to snatch changing gears and isn't very smooth. Sometimes it's almost like you're riding the clutch a bit as it makes a bit more noise but its not really moving more (not easy to explain). The weirdest part is its only seemed to have started doing it since I disconnected the battery for a few hours. I removed the battery to charge it and since putting it back on the gear box seems much snatchier than before. Not sure if this is linked or if I'm only just noticing more. I'd be really interested in the software update you get as I think I'll be booking mine in soon. :(

    Exactly how mine feels but only in 3rd and its done it once going into 5th. I thought one of the clutches was dodgy. I will speak to Audi and get this booked in
