Angry clutch dual mass flywheel 1.8t a4

hi i have a 1.8t audi a4 with a bfb engine code now and then it can be quite difficult to engage gears not all the time but last night i was stuck in a major traffic jam 1 hour plus and i seemed to be getting a very slight judder when taking up drive in second gear but engaging all gears smooth first time i have ever felt this i have been told these have a dual mass flywheel and this could be the problem but what i cant understand is if the clutch and dual mass flywheel are on the way out why dosent it do it all the time??i have now phoned 5 different garages and have had quotes from £1350+vat from audi down to £610 from a specialist with a luk clutch and flywheel oem. Im told by some to change to solid flywheel others dont well confused i live in wolverhampton i do know a good audi mechanic who could fit one any idears (solid or dual mass is it the clutch or both clutch and flywheel why dosent it do it all the time help please this has already cost me nearly £2000 last year on turbo and oil pump strainer im really beginning to lose my love affair with audi whats next i dread to think thanks ps its done 90,000 miles full service history

If your flywheel does need changing and you dont want to spend all your hard earned cash i would advise buying a warranty for your car ... There are many companies in the uk that will cover the car.. The AA are a reputable outfit and looking at there 5 star cover i reckon you could put in a claim after a while

AA Warranty - Car Products - Mechanical Breakdown Insurance - 5 Star Cover

If its just the clutch thats on its way out Nationwide Autocentres(AA approved) can change it for about £570 but i think you can get that discounted if your a AA breakdown member ? -Nationwide Autocentre - MOT, Car Servicing, Repairs, Tyres, Brakes, Cambelts, Diagnostics

It is not uncommon for the dual mass flywheel to get hot and start shuttering like you have experienced here. In fact, it is a complaint of many. So have swapped over to a single mass flywheel, typically lightened, in order to eliminate the failing dual mass flywheel. If your flywheel is beginning to go out on you, you may want to consider a single mass flywheel and a new clutch disc. We a great kit for this here, click click and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the difference.
