2012 Audi A5 Quattro S Line 3.0L 7-spd (S Tronic)
Harsh Transmission Engagement

The vehicle is actually a 2012 S4 but the model is not listed same engine transmission package nonetheless. The symptom is when you come to a stop The vehicle will downshift hard and it feels like it's somebody hit you from the rear end. I scan the vehicle and found no trouble codes and engine or the transmission. I'm not 100% sure of what pids to look at or what I'm looking for at this point any suggestions would be appreciated Thanks.
