Hi , had a five speed b6 manual before . gearbox In the b8 seems notchy in comparison . higher gears ok , low gears not great particularly in slow moving traffic. only got car in week and test drive was on faster roads . Can anyone comment ?

I do think the gearbox can be notchy, yes, but not crunching so it doesn’t concern me as such - think we will go for a DSG next time
