I wish.
I have a colleague with said model and is experiencing a juddering when the car is in gear.

Apparently it is very bad in reverse but quite bad in forward gears.

Gets better as the car gets warmer but never goes away.

Still drives OK.

Car had the control unit re-flashed to sort out bad changing previously (bad changes kicked in after a few moments from cold) back in the Summer as well as having the fluid etc. all changed at the same time.

Car now on 177k.

He is taking it to an auto specialist but meanwhile...

Any suspicions on what this could be?

My suspicion is the torque converter or a drive shaft but not sure.
