(I just did the tranny service, sealing sleeve, and mechatronics seal adapter two weeks ago). If anyone is having troubles with rough shifting or a "bump" between gears, it is LIKELY the seal adapter which sits on top of the mechatronics and seals a port between the body of the tranny and mechatronics. My car runs like new now!
Thanks for the Info!
