Welcome to the best forum on the web!

I'd get your dealer to take a look at the problem, its a brand new car afterall.

Hi and welcome to civinfo.

You're not the only 08MY Type R owner to be experiencing a problem with the gearbox.

As Wheelie says take it into the dealer.

Hi and welcome to Civinfo

Take a look at the Thread Dimplyred showed you and if necessary take it back to the dealer to sort out for you.

thanks will defo have a trip to the dealers...but from reading about other peoples experiences with this problem the dealer is unlikley to admit the gearbox is dodgy, even after testing it.and they try to put it down to the driver
