Have noticed since service when they uploaded some new software ! twice now when pulling away at lights the gearbox seems to miss a gear as if it jumps into neutral only for a second or two but its very worrying, anyone else had this, if it happens again think its a trip to the dealers.

It is possible that the system needs to re-learn the clutch bite point.  Give it some time.

Touch wood has not done it again, going on a 600 miles round trip this week that should test it thanks for asking.

Please report your findings.  There have been a few complaints of a similar nature on other threads and it would be nice to confirm my theory that this is about learning clutch bite point and goes away given time.

This would seem to support the theory that it needs to relearn the clutch bite point.  Worth knowing.
