clunky change from first to second

Hi Guys,

I've noticed my S1 isn't very smooth when changing from first to second, it's noticeable when starting from cold, and sometimes better when I let the revs get higher before I shift up - is there a knack to it? I've been told first to second is a less synchronised change than the others anyhow?

Or is it just my lame driving?

Thanks

Mine was the same, I fit a new second gear and synchromesh. It's a lot better but still not perfect, I've driven other S1's that are the same, and other 6 speed quattro boxes can be the same unfortunately

Thanks Dom - so hopefully it's not something that I have to worry about if it's a common characteristic!
