Mines booked in for next Tuesday, if there’s anything wrong surely Audi will be footing the bill.
Just booked mine in after reading this thread. 66 plate S3. What I am intrigued to know is what Audi is saying if this update then flags the fluid pump error on the gearbox, as I'm out of warranty could be in for a big repair bill but because we didn't have this software monitor in place whilst in warranty we'd never know if the issue has been present during that time.
is this not the worry?
They install the new software and the software pings an error saying something is about to break and stops the car.
the software did its job based on the recall/campaign but your car is still broken.
the campaign/recall is for a software update not for faulty hardware.
even if it doesn’t blow up your gearbox the work involved in replacing that shaft is a gearbox out job which will run into thousands at the dealers.
