    Morning Guys,

    I'm new here, I bought my A3 2 weeks ago from an 'Audi Specialist' dealership.
    It's a 2006 A3 2.0TFSI S-Line.
    Unfortunately, shortly after picking it up, I noticed every so often on gear changes, the clutch pedal goes light and after changing gear, it stays about an inch off the floor rather than fully returning. It has no effect on the actual gear change however.
    I also noticed that on idle (when starting up and when stopping at junctions etc) there is an inconsistent judder.

    I searched on here about the pedal issue and from what I've read, 99% of the time it is a worn or failing Clutch Slave Cylinder, please correct me if that isn't the case?
    As for the judder, I couldn't really find a lot, but from basic knowledge I believe it could be a number of things contributing, i.e worn Clutch, Flywheel hot-spots etc.
    It may also just be me not being used to this type of car/engine. I've come from owning 6 Honda's, all N/A, so the change to a turbo-charged Audi may be throwing me off, but I don't believe a turbo-charged production car should idle like this?

    I phoned the dealership explaining the issue and they said bring it in and we'll fix it free of charge, which was Friday. I was then rung yesterday and told the car was ready and that they had changed the Clutch Master Cylinder rather than the Slave, as that was what was causing the problem.
    I picked the car up last night and within 45 minutes the pedal issue occurred again (fuming at this point, dealership now closed for the day too).

    I contacted them this morning explaining it has happened again on the first journey after supposedly having it fixed. They said they will take it in again and have a look.

    Can anyone give me some extra advise? I have a feeling the dealership is trying to swerve around the idea of taking the gearbox off as this will cost them time and money, and have done so already by just replacing the Master Cylinder which I believe is behind the pedal.

    I've tried to find out more about both problems today but haven't had much luck.

    About the rough idle/judder, could this be the PCV going bad? I've read that this can cause a rough idle?

    Trying to find out so I can get the dealer to correct all the problems at once, rather than having just one problem fixed and having to live with another.
