My mention of selecting neutral is only meant for traffic jams that appear to be stationary for a long time.
Overheating message 4 times in an hour with no delays sure sounds a wrong one.
Dodgy sensor?

Journey time two hours. Reset ace 30 minute intervals.
I hope it is just a sensor
We will see. Tomorrow.

Update Tuesday the 6th.
After visit to VW Norwich and fault interrogation it has been decided that a new Seven Speed Direct Shift Gearbox Control Unit is required.
One is on order, in the mean time I have the car back as it's deemed safe to continue driving the car until new part arrived.
The part is complex and I am told very expensive, job is under warranty.

When the car was in they also found steering software required an update,do not know what this was about as I could detect no difference etc when driving home.

Not really good news all round,I will update when new control is installed.

Update.
New dsg mechatronic unit fitted yesterday for gearbox control.
Was told this was the fault.
Have not taken for a long drive yet.
Will comment again next week as I am off on a 250 mile drive this weekend.

Good news and nice pic Pete. I'd have removed your reg no before posting though - misuse is rife on the net :)

Probably need to msg Rob (the moderator). I don’t understand why the “edit” functionality disappears after a few hours.
