S-TRONIC REPAIRS

The S-Tronic gearbox can be found in a wide range of Audi vehicles. S-TRONIC is the Audi version of the VW DSG. They are fitted longitudinally as opposed to the Transverse layout of the DSG. They are found in models ranging from the A5/A5 chassis up to the flagship A8. The S-Tronic system is a reliable and durable gearbox, however there are a few common faults that can be diagnosed and repaired. In most cases the main dealer will condemn the complete gearbox and the costs involved can surpass the value of the car they are fitted in. Here at Regal Autosport we specialise in S-Tronic Repairs. In 98% of failures the unit can be repaired at a fraction of the cost of a replacement gearbox. S-Tronic repairs are carried out in house by our experienced technicians. The Mechatronic unit is the most common component to fail, although this is sometimes a result of an internal component failure. All Mechatronic repairs come with a Lifetime guarantee. There is also a ”CVT’ variant fitted in some models.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant service from start to finish! Took my C63 AMG in for a secondary de-cat bypass and done a fantastic job. Friendly staff and the cars in the garage say it all. I can't do anything without researching companies first and these guys are top, definitely found a trusted garage & mechanics

I purchased a standard old Mk1 TT that was "looked after" in the Audi dealership before. I am always skeptic with such places so I googled a local garage with TT expertise and found this place. When I arrived I saw the Porsche GT-s and such in the yard and I thought maybe this is not my league. However staff was super nice and helpful, lifted the car up straight away and I saw one of their experts investigating the car, like an experienced doctor who exactly knows where to reach. They gave me a reasonable quote, did the job in the promised time frame, even added some extras. I never felt the "old lady" was less of a car than any of the others. The owner is very friendly, explained everything. I will stick with them and would definitely recommend them to anyone.
