Ive noticed two issues so far in my 6 since ive bought it

3 gear drops when switching from 2nd on occation, it might just be me though

and the next i know is def not me

driving down the highway in 4th gear i go to switch to 5th and guess what, it doesnt want to throw up and catch, i sometimes really have to shove it up there for it to go, other times it takes a few tries to get it to catch, and then the other 33% of the time it is fine. what the **** is going on? could the clutch be bad? or is the flywheel shot? or am i just a dumb*** lol...

Ok, might make a stop by tonight. Thanks for the advice. They will fix the condensation problem in the front lights as well correct?

If your car is new the transmission can be extremely notchy, mine was. But after about 5000 km, the shifter should smooth out a bit. I've tried the shifters on 6s with 50000 km, the shifters are a lot smoother once you rack up that kind of mileage and wear it in a bit.

my 3rd gear used to grind in at around 3k rpms, and wouldn't go in at all sometimes, especially when driving hard. Brought it to the dealer and the swapped out the gear and syncro, put some redline in and shifts are great now. so +1 on getting warranty work done.
