    Hi, i'm a new member and looking to get involved.

    I have a 2006 E90 (318i) with 73k on the clock, and recently there has been judder / vibration when taking off in first gear. Might be worth noting but lately getting into first gear when the car is cold can be a wee bit sticky.

    Its significant enough to discern between normal cluthch vibration and proper judder. Again, this is only in first gear and when going from a standstill.

    Any help appreciated,

    cheers
    Davie

    Clutch judder is usually something like oil or some other crap somehow getting on the surface of the clutch itself and causing it to not grip properly or smoothly when engaging causing the juddering effect as it grips in part, then slips, then grips and so on.

    It can also be caused by other parts of the clutch or flywheel being slightly out of shape usually from being just plain worn out or glazed to the point it's not getting consistent grip. or even release bearing you could try slipping the clutch giving it some power it might clean it up

    If it's a Hydraulic clutch rather than a cable operated one, I have had good results in the past by just changing the clutch fluid.
    Hope you get it sorted out & don't forget to post up the solution that worked, so that others that have the same or similar problems in the future can find help easier.
    Cheers,
    Aaron.

    Hi folks,

    thanks for all the feedback. My mechanic (a BMW independent) had a look and a drive and doesnt think their is anything abnormal

    Following a full service the car seems to be back to her good old self, with the judder gone!!

    Thanks again,

    Davie
