Love my '03A4Q3L.6spd (13K miles). Got in the car tonight and started
her up. Outside ambient temp reads +6F. Waited about 30 seconds.
Getting into first was no problem. Second was another story. I didn't
want to force it, so I did a double clutch and raised the RPM a
little. It finally slipped in with a little coaxing and grind. No
problem once the car was moving for a few min. The questions are is
this normal? Should I let it warm up a little longer in the extreme
cold? Will any damage result?
