Thank you very much.
Then I'll go with there repair here. This shop where I'm taking it, althought it is in a different city, is specialized in automatic gearboxes, they fix them for a few years now, I saw even a Bentley in their shop, and heard they fix Ferrari boxes as well (now this might be bogus, as a Ferrari owner with gearbox issues might not take it for repair to any shop). They also seemed to be familiar with Powershift boxes, they grant 1 year warranty for their work without mileage limit, so hopefully it will turn out fine.

1 year warranty sounds good.
All the best

A bit of update for anyone interested. My car is still at the repair shop, after ~1.5 months. Not happy about that. But, they say it's fixed, and I'll get it back in a few days. Clutch was replaced. That was the problem they say. 2000 euros total repair cost.

2000 euros sounds about right for a DMF. Hopefully it's sorted

Got the car back today. Works fine, better than before. There is still that clunk when shfting from 1 to 2, but now I think it related to something else than the gearbox.

Hello,

Not sure if it's still related to Powershift (I hope not), but something weird happened today:
while standing still, in Drive position, with the brake pressed, suddenly the car started shaking, and I heard a sound like that when the engine shuts off by itself, and then it got back to normal in a matter of a second or two. After that it worked normally, a few more kilometers until my destination.

Any idea what it could be?

Hello!

After aprox two years of working good, my Powershift has done it again 1.5 months ago, at the end of Dec 2018. While driving slow is a traffic jam, suddenly started to shaken seriously when switching to second gear, and after a few times of that, an error appeared (german language, didn't got to note it down), and it stopped changing gears. I had to drive back home a few miles only with 1st gear. I haven't moved it since then.
So I got myself a dice a few days ago, and investigated the error. I got what is says in the attachments.
so I have a few questions
1. Does anyone know what exactly that means?
2. Vida says it might be either oil level low, some defective sensor, or defective solenoids. But I can't see any oil leaks in there, and the solenoid didn't errored out on the tests did to itself after that.
3. I didn't moved the car since then, but giving what I found, would it be safe to give it another road test to see if either works fine or the error comes back?

I have recorded the vida diagnostics, but being the first time with vida and dice, you might find it boring. But you can look at around 4:15, when I got the error and digged into it. At around 6:05 you can see the frozen values at the time of the incident. At around 8:15 you can see the error description

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
