    Hi to all new on here, just picked up my 07 a4 2.0 tdi 140 avant with 41k on it, just a question when the car is cold and i pull away there is i judder at the clutch bitting point but when warmed up it seems to dissapear, is this just a trait of these engines or is it the dreaded dual mass fly wheel playing up???, or am i just not used to a diesel when cold lol

    Well Audi had it back. Took the gear box off. Replaced the clutch and flywheel all under warranty. Fantastic.
    So as well as a shed load of engine work before I bought it this has now been done. Basicly new engine almost?

    mentioned this to Audi, as they're going to be taking off the gearbox anyway due to a leak somewhere, as I've also got this issue...joy...

    good news, they've authorised the repairs, it was a leaking pipe/seal that went into the gearbox and they're doing the DMF as well :)

    Hoping to get it back today/tomorrow and get some power back under my right foot :)
