Audi s5 b8.5 dsg Anyone have/had issue of car jerking forward when coming to a stop. Happens 5-10% of the time. Sometimes its light other times it's more violent. Feels like it's the gearbox holding onto 2nd too long before going into first gear. Car has 29k on the clock so maybe the gearbox service will resolve it when due at 32k?

What year is it?
But yes, the DSG box only drops into 1st when at an almost standstill, maybe 1mph, otherwise if you don't stop dead, it will set off in 2nd gear.

As regards the lurch forward, it maybe a fix when serviced, or a problem!?

Just a thought: my 3.2 V6 suffered a little when moving away especially when the engine was cold, I feared the worst. Instead I changed the transmission oil and she was excellent, problem solved. She was very sensitive to the transmission oil level, even just 100ml made a difference so it's worth jacking her up at one end to ensure the box is totally full.
