Finally the trans. blew. Ended up a huge and ugly argument with Audi. (I had been complaining about a slight drip under passengers side for 2 years. I have the paper trail) Fought, fought, fought for my rights with Audi. They think they gave me something but I still paid over $7,000. for repair. Advise - hang in there and keep your paperwork, they change my wording to, "Customer requests 5 point check-up." My paperwork proved I said, "Customer complains of a leak under passengers side."
