I have a 2008 Audi R8, i went out in a cruise tonight and stepped on the pedal several of times against a mercedes E63, 20 minutes after that i parked to get some food and kept the engine running. When I came back I tried to reverse the car and it was not moving. (the car is not moving in reverse or drive). A warning message (Gearbox Malfunction) appeared.
I shut off the engine and kept the car to cool down for 20 minutes, i started the engine again and this time i could not put the gear on D or R, it stayed on neutral and the Gearbox Malfunction message kept appearing.
The car is now towed to the dealer.
I tried googling this issue but could not find anything, i really hope is isnt something expensive.
Please advice, ill appreciate your help.
PS: the car already done 61,000 km
UPDATE: Just came back from the dealer and it's a clutch issue, the clutch wear measure was at 1327 (its suppose to be between 3000 - 8000, the higher the number the more it wears/any number outside this range means you need to replace the clutch).
UPDATE 2: I ordered the clutch (Part Number 079141011E), Bearing (086141671D), seals, bolts and 4 brake pads from Audi Henderson Parts for $2848. All of these parts at my local dealer was for $5220. I think the shipping from USA to Bahrain will cost me $400
UPDATE 3: The parts arrived today and I verified it with the dealer, all parts are ok. They will start working on my car tomorrow morning
UPDATE 4: I received my car from the dealer last night and took it for a ride, everything seems alright and the shifting of the gear is smooth. I'll give you guys the final update after using the car for 3 more days
UPDATE 5: Car is smooth and drives perfectly, I guess this case is now closed
