Please update when you get a response from VW 👍Sit rep update Nov '22: After getting a little 'fruity' with the Service Manager of my local VW dealership, I finally got him to agree further investigation of my D7/D8 'hunting' issue. The car has only done about 2k miles since the upgrade was done in June, but despite me doing several gearbox-resets, the problem has not gone away. The dealer's Master Technician went on a ride-out with me on a dual carriageway, and he agreed that once D8 had been reached at around 55mph+, it would immediately drop back to D7 with the slightest touch of the accelerator. Only above 80mph would it stay in D8 - sorry officer! So, back at the workshop they hooked the car up to their ODIS system, and it showed 'TCM software version 3620'. That is clearly a newer version than the 3546 one mentioned earlier, but it obviously still hasn't cured the problem. The dealer has now agreed to contact VW Technical UK with a request for a solution, and if necessary to refer to VW HQ in Germany. I will hold my breath for a solution, and post an update/outcome in due course for the interest of anyone else similarly afllicted.
