    Sounds like the clutch is on its way out, they can get better when they warm up and the components expand a bit, how many miles has the car done?

    You might get more help if you used some punctuation!

    It sounds like the clutch is wearing out to me. Clutch problems can come and go, but will get progressively worse over time, for sure.

    Don't get it done at Audi, it's a complete rip off. If you've got a remap or are considering one, I recommend an uprated clutch. They are about £200 more than standard. I had mine done for £900 at an independent. Beats the £1100 quoted by Audi for standard!

    the master cylinder was £46 inc vat of audi and the fittin was £60 of my mate, the wee bit of pipe had just cracked and was leaking break fluid so it was sooking air in, had to take the dash of under the steering wheel lookd a bit of a fukr minde you, think a remap mite be coming soon fingers crossd,dont know where a would take it star performance miby.
