    Juddering when setting off, hard to get into 1st

    Hi all
    i had the DMF and new clutch done about 3,000 miles ago but I've noticed recently it's hard to get into 1st gear and juddered when setting off, in cold and when the car warms up. If I over rev when setting off there is no juddering.
    Is this symptoms of the release bearing failing?
    Or could it need a software update? How can I check if it has ever had the update?
    I'm unaware of when the last gearbox oil change was done, if this could cause these issues.
    Any other ideas?
    Just a bit annoyed that after new DMF and clutch these issues are still there
    Cheers
    john

    Any help on how to check if it's had the software update for the clutch sensor first
    Then I can start looking at other options.
    Cheers

    I have same issues, audi will not admit their flywheels are crap.
    For the gear changing try a fully synthetic oil. That should help.

    It's due a full service next month so will do that then
    Have you had the software update and did it help with your issue?

    If its juddering its most likely the flywheel but you may as well do the clutch while your in there.
    Custom stainless straight through quad pipe, S5 brake callipers, Black diamond grooved discs, red stuff pads, S4 diffuser, EGR delete, stage 1 remap, 19" staggered X5 wheels, G23 custom adaptors, stretched tyres, window tints, coilovers, vag com mods, K&N, led interior lights, led number plate bulbs, pressed plates, black edition grill. Plenty more to be done.

    Faith restored in my regular German Marque Specialist garage, explained the need for replacement clutch, but like you say it's the dual mass flywheel that's at fault, it just makes sense to do the clutch while it's stripped down, like you say! Thanks! May put it off as advised by the garage after the quote came in at £950!!

    Go on darkside developments to buy your flywheel/clutch kit £400ish mine is the same but only slight judder I'm just putting it off really until it gets a bit worse but I've had 2 quotes of £800 all in for replacement flywheel & clutch.

    Oh no - that sucks! Would the remap have actually caused clutch slip?!?!

    It definitely wouldn't have helped it with the extra torque the clutch will not last as long however my car has just reached 50k and this is the 3rd clutch to go in it apparently when they got in there they realised it wasn't Audi original so that's not very good of a car of that mileage.
