Hes right, this seems previlent in most VW's. I got in the habbit of putting it in first then reverse in my 16V Scirocco now I do it in my raddo. My Corrado tranny never grinded when I just go straight to reverse but I shift 1st then reverse anyway just to be safe.

Reverse isn't synchro'd... thats the problem... no vw has a synchro for reverse.
