Internet research brought stories of very expensive DSG failures and replacement costing several thousands. So, having quite a bit of value tied up in the car which was otherwise perfect I started to consider my options.I have access to workshop facilities and decide to look for a replacement gearbox before'needing' one. Surprisingly, an ideal gearbox turned up quickly at a local breakers from a crash damaged SQ5 that was 2012. Especially as I was doing quite a bit of towing with it. The funny thing was the the clunky shift seemed to miraculously cure itself and the car went on to complete 200k miles without any issues. As far as I can recall the donor car was something like 35 - 40k miles which was close to half the mileage of my car at the time I bought the gearbox.
I expect to find one six years later with so little mileage would be a challenge.
