Mine does the same, especialy if I reverse out of a car park and put it into Drive, it clunks. Wonder if the box needs a look at?

Mine does similar things.

The most annoying thing is when I head out of the driveway and trun right, it often "falls" out of gear going around the corner and I find my self rolling down the street free-reving.

This started about 1yr ago, after I got it all serviced, so I took it back and the d**kh**d didnt fill it up with enough fluid!! So they filled it up, and the problem went away. But it's slowly come back again, I'm hoping it's just running out of fluid again, but I suspect it's dying a slow death.

Mine does the same, it could be your S5 solinoid, Give it a service and failing that, whilst its getting a service get them to check the ecu for fault codes, this will show them what solinoid is stuffed, if it is a solinoid problem..
