    A colleague of mine has a 17 plate A5 2.0TDi manual with 5k on the clock.
    He has clutch judder. It's not just the A6 it effects.

    They have, they stopped selling the manual gearbox version.

    DMF's are notorious for their problems. Ask any taxi driver who drives VW group (or any other group) manual if they have replaced their clutch yet? Most will have and at th esame time replaced the DMF with a solid flywheel. Slightly more vibration at launch but no more failures after a few miles.

    DMFs just make the pull away smoother by cushioning the vibration the engine passes on to the gearbox

    Replacing DMF with solid flywheel is stupid and I don't care what people who do that kind of things say or think.
    And DMF makes everything smoother while engine is running.
    And they sold manual until the end of A6 C7 !
    And what solid DMF they use for Audi A6 C7 ? From BiTDI ?

    But removing DPF is ok though, how strange.

    Well yes, DPF doesn't make car run any better, gearbox and clutch last longer.
    Sure its bad for out health, but look how many old piece of crap cars without any health concerns are on roads worldwide.

    The DMF generally only makes the pull away smoother. once the drivetrain is under load, the flywheel effectively gets stick in one position until the load is removed. It is essentially two solid flywheels joined together with rubber blocks. These rubber blocks can only take so much vibration until they start to break down and the dust contaminates the clutch plates and the starter motor meaning that whenever you replace the clutch on a car these days, unlike before when it was only the clutch and maybe the release bearing, now you change the flywheel and starter motor too to save having to pull it all apart again before the clutch goes again next time.

    It helps every time you push and release clutch or push and release throttle.
    It saves gearbox.
    Its not just a rubber blocks but spring system, which actually dampens violent torque variations.
    If it would not be effective it would not be used as car manufacturers are always trying to make things cheaper - look at VW emission scandal for example.
    Problem is there are many reliable DMFs and clutches and also many unreliable.
    C7's manual gearbox combination is one of worst by far.
    Changed DMF for my '06 Passat B6 BMR DSG, payed for new LUK 270 EUR, changed by myself and 30 min help from friend (took 7 hours as I didn't have special tool for pilot bearing)
    Morale - don't buy manual !
