Re: A4 2.8 drivetrain bounce

The hesitation U are talking about maybe is same as my
experience of glitch.
The feeling is like...something is not smooth, and
I feel I hit on something.
~2 months, I started to feel that.
after 5~, I even have those glitch feeling when I shift
from 2 to 3 gear, even from 3 to 4. 

I told my dealer about it.... they told me they cannot feel it!

New my car was new, I just feel it once for a while.
but now.... always. Seriously, this is a disguisting feeling...
