Hello. Had an issue before that you all helped me with, and now I have another! 1999.5 A4 1.8t manual trans. I am getting a 'shudder' when shifting into first and second gears, almost feels like a slip, but 3rd through 5th are smooth. I'm no tech, have no idea what this problem might be. It kind of sounds like if you tried to start from a standstill in 5th, if that helps. Anyone know what this might be?

How many miles are on the clutch? Is it the OEM one? Or an upgraded one?

Original clutch 120k miles. Clutch burnout was my first thought.
