Thanks Mike, no VAGCOM here, so can't guarantee it's the F125, but i'm pretty sure that's the case. It was persistently showing this for three days in a row, even with gentle persuasion, which I've not had before. Then it cleared yesterday, and I took him for a good 20 minute drive then, making sure I exercised the 'box without thrashing it, but now it's back again, so I've left him with my local (trusted!) mechanic to see if cleaning the contacts helps.

Autos Autos everywhere...
(1) 2015 Tesla Model S: (was 85D, now 90D ). Silent and deadly, and very fast... But not as fast as Ian's -
(2) 2002 D2 S8 Final Edition: Bulletproof and faultless: Ebony Black with Extended (Red!) Leather. Three-times winner of Best D2 1st prize
(3) 1997 Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo: Scots (! ) Green. Fragile, but beautiful.
(4) 2010 Fiat Panda 100HP. White Pandamonium (Final Edition!!). Pure old-fashioned 6-speed go-karting.
