There is a difference from DSG shuttering and an entire car shaking. Thanks for all the sterling advice moose.

To the OP: I wish I could help but I'm still waiting for mine to get delivered ><
That's not attacking. Mmmoose could show you attacking if he wanted to. He's one of the most knowledgeable people on the boards, you'd do well to make friends with him.

I would assume the shuddering is simlar to what happens if you attempt to do a "no-gas" start in a manual vehicle? When you let the clutch out real slow and then the RPM's drop low enough and then the computer tries to keep the car running and boosts RPM?
