Gday cobbers!

I have a 06 M5 and have found that when starting off from standstill I have to nurse the accelorator/throttle/power peddle/fun lever - whatever you call it wherever you are - to minimise shudder or jerkiness. Once the clutch has firmly established a gear I can freely slam full throttle with no unwelcome consequence.

I have had 2 mechanics take a look - one says shaft bearing, the other clutch.

Anyone encountered similar probs with theirs?

I think that's normal

I have to modulate my throttle when the car is cold to make sure there is no jerkiness. I find that in S6 with its quick shifts there's much less chance of this occuring.
