Like Ive posted before, I also had a friend with the same car and same issue and he ALSO had the Mechatronix changed out and it resolved the problem!
Have the tech RE-CREATE/WITNESS your problem then MENTION that you have read online about the Mechatronix problem. They SHOULD take care of it if youre still under warranty!
Thanks! Forwarding this on to my SA, hope things go smoothly with this, definitely will let you know..
