I would offer as food for thought: how could the shudder/hestitation possibly be normal if the advent of cold weather made it go away so much ?
If its normal it should continue.
Anyone else seeing any change in cold weather ?
ps I am a former vw gti owner and am very familiar with this type transmission.

Now that weather is getting colder just about everywhere, I'll keep an eye on this thread (and the others) to see how many people's transmission noises disappear. Please reach out to me over PM if you have any other questions or concerns.
