I did a search put couldn't find any info on this matter...


Well I've had my S5 (manual transmission) for more than a week now and I totally love it. But there is one small thing that buggs tha hell out of me everytime I change gears! :mad:

My gearbox stick is kind of loose, by that I mean, when I have it in neutral the stick isn't that stiff. Don't get me wrong, it's not loose in any way but I can wiggle it maybe 1-2 cm side to side. But when I change gears it's kinda' stiff. And I like it that way.

Or when I have the stick in a gear, it's not stiff enough, I can still wiggle it. This bugs me a lot, I want it to be rock solid. The gearbox on my previous car (A4 -06) was more stiff.

I talked to the dealer the other day but the technician had nothing to say, he wasn't sure how the S5 gearbox stick should feel... and they had no other manual A5 or S5.


Now, how stiff are your gearbox sticks?

Have the technician put some Viagra in the gearbox...it will stiffen that stick right up...:D:D

No problems with my stick...still working like it should, just not as often as I'd like...I mean, I don't get to drive the car as often as I want to...or something like that.:D

I haven't noticed anything anomalous...on my 07 335i I noticed a little play when in gear but have really looked at/or noticed the S5 being weird...so I guess nothing odd that I'm noticing. Will look for it next drive.

Here's a vid of my gearbox, for some reason the video is up side down :)


Maybe it doesn't illustrate my point very well, but hopefully someone will understand :D
Now I apply very little force to make the stick wiggle that amout shown in the video.
