as far as I've heard, it only really becomes a "problem" when you start adding horsepower. guys like to flash the ECU or give it a Stage 1 and then start noticing transmission problems, but I'm pretty certain a stock genesis wont see many problems, and if it does a warranty claim should sort it out.

no different from dudes with the GTI dsg who dumped an extra 50 horsies under the hood with no other alterations and wonder why the tranny is screwed up

they're putting out around the same horsepower, but the 135i definitely has the edge in torque.
