from cold and only once since starting off should be Ok but the common practice of leaving cars in gear when stopped soon weakens the clutch shock absorber springs, hence judder, this driving practice is also responsible for the death of dual mass flywheels on modern diesels.

What I have found that helps is to lift the clutch without touching theaccelerator. The car then starts to move, enginemanagementtakes over, and once the clutch is fully up, press the gas.

I have the same car as you and have now done 26k. I only get the judder if I try to set off too fast.

Hi Rich, that's the technique I used on diesels and never wore a clutch out in over a million miles of company driving. If yours judders with a quick take off, maybe the springs are a bit soft for that sort of energy input?
