Also in Hertfordshire is a Citroen and Peugeot independent specialist called BL Autos http://www.blautos.co.uk/. I have used them once for some small thing so can't really give a huge recommendation, however I can tell you they were so nice to me and didt charge me, that I ended up going back later that day to tell the owner what I thought of the mechanic who helped me and a bottle of nice wine for the mechanic as a small token of my apreciation.

Both the guys you mention are great, but tbh, the price from the dealers is quite reasonable if that includes a new dual mass.
Would be interested to see what the two other guys quote.

My 2012 is having the same problem slight judder when first starting off but not while changing up and down the box in auto or manual.
I am hoping its something like a sticking release.
Its a shame that goa55 didn't update how he got on with he's car

The slight judder is usually caused by wear in the dual mass flywheel.
This can often be cured for a short time by reprogramming the clutch biting point on Diagbox.
Unfortunately I have found this to be a short lived solution & normally within a week or so the judder returns, hence needing a full replacement.
The clutches in these cars are so smooth once replaced & programmed correctly.

My local dealer said he would have a look at it in the new year and he went through all the options which varied  from a software adjustment to full replacement but I did cost in  paying around 1500 when buying the car and I'll still be on the right side.  I did find a none dealer ( a egs Specialist)  who can do it for less  but will take to my dealer  next week as it due for a service and he will give me the good or bad news Smile

I had exactly the same but on my Mini Countryman at 38k. It would also judder on the motorway with the cruise control on occasionally. I was lucky as I bought it from Mini as a used car and they replaced to whole drive train under warranty. Dual mass fly wheel and full clutch assembly. Unfortunately the dual mass had damaged the gearbox which was also replaced under warranty. Glad as the bill was circa £6k so sometimes its worth main dealer and some times not. All depends on age, price and any additional work which could be covered!! I got the Mini TLC XL pack so 80k or 8 years old whichever comes first Smile

I keep telling my other half not to hang on the clutch in our auto. I've told here to either stop or go, but not to dither about in between. I'm not sure whether she understands though. This is the problem with semi-autos, most drivers would know they were chewing the clutch using a clutch pedal, and a traditional auto would take it for ever. But a dry-clutch auto will happily grind the thing away if you just hang on a hill with it.

I'm fully expecting a big bill at some point, after which she might understand.
