stupid question but i will ask it anyways what are your fluid levels like and how long since the box has had fresh fluid in it ?

and if you are going to take it to a shop get a stage 2 shift kit and get them to fit it then the box will be good for years to come

fluid levels are fine,and im not sure when it had the fluid changed as i have only just bought the car 3 weeks ago.hoping it just needs a service and filter.will def get the shift kit at some stage tho.

I wouldn't go putting a shift kit until you get it fixed first. The gearboxes don't slip, virtually impossible. Could be a buggered torque converter. Or low on fluid. Get it serviced and get the dudes to check your box out for anything else.
It's usually the service pistons that let go before the actual clutch bands go. If clutch bands go, might as well be up for a reco.

Nah they do.... a lot...

Id say its up for a rebuild if its doing it a lot like that.... it might be shitty fluid but still....
