SMG Shudder in 1st Gear

Hi all,

I have done quite a bit of searching on this but not found a definite answer. I own a 2003.5 M3 SMG and when accelerating from a dead stop i occasionally get a shudder and a quiet thunk seeming to come from the drivers side wheel well around 800-1000 rpm. Using sport mode seems to make this a bit better (probably because the rpms raise quicker).

I wondered if any other local M3 SMG owners can comment on this as solutions on the forums seem to range from SMG resets, new clutches/flywheels to its normal, deal with it.
