    Car judders and difficult to put in first gear (not all the time)

    Just bought a 2005 plate a3 2.0 tdi and I am not exactly very pleased.

    It has a wobble / shake sometimes on idle when at traffic lights and I have noticed first gear is stiff (again not all the time - if its stiff what cures it is lifting the clutch a tad then putting it back down)

    Also seems like there is a rattle from passenger side wheel area!

    Whats going on with my car? And I take it I got done?

    clutch issue is common on most VAG cars. Usually releasing clutch around 1/4 way allows you to slide the gearstick into first.

    Not sure about the wobble, could be a number of things.
