It looks like the S-tronic / multitronic oil and filters were changed at 48k and 55k miles.
You have checked the V5 has the seller as the owner, I assume.
I would argue that the gearbox issue makes the car unroadworthy and want to return the car for a refund.
Sorry to hear this, especially as it appears you've been duped by the previous owner. I'd definitely fight this all the way, you've got good evidence to show the previous owner was probably aware of the fault...
Are you using an independant garage to do the work? If so have you been given an idea on the labour cost? I'm fortunate enought to have bought a car that had the mechatronic unit recently replaced by Audi, however it'd be good to know that in the worst case this repair can be done for less than the £4000 horror stories you hear about!!
