    With ref to the turbo pipe , yes this is a common issue for the clips to give in allowing pipe to come off .

    once replaced though should be good for another few years .

    shudder on dsg is hard to diagnose , it could be dual mass flywheel starting to wear / fail but then it might not be .

    I would strongly suggest making sure the dsg has been serviced , it's required at every 40k mmiles and is a must or risk expensive repairs

    and welcome to the forum , these guys will help you spend money !

    hi 347 thanks for reply the pipe worried me as it happend within 2 weeks of me owning it im worried it will happen again!

    from reading a bit more i belive it could be the D M F causing the juddering (HOPE NOT!)


    the service book does show that dsg box was serviced by audi at 40k and 80k so not due till 120k

    thanks again for every ones input.....
