Knowing how some service departments operate, referring to a TSB in this case may get you a blank stare and no progress.

To confirm your car is covered, go to and input your VIN in the "vehicle" section.
Yep, FSA not TSB...

As I understand this FSA will apply to ALL DCT FF's built on or before 3/28/12.

So far the word seems to be pretty good but please provide feedback when you have the update performed.

I don't actually have a FF yet, my Ti is on order and due to be built next week. I'm really hoping this DCT problems are, with this FSA, a thing of the past.

Of course, you can't please everyone so there's likely to be some complaining even if it works near perfect...
