Polo 6R GTI reverse shudder

Any ideas why my polo would shudder or shunt when I put into reverse, also does it when downshifting in auto

Classic Polo 6r gti issue with the dry clutch systems. My father had the same issue, he took it to Vw edenvale and they sorted it out. No it’s not a software thing so don’t let them tell you they will load software and it’ll go away.

It won’t. But they should be knowledgeable enough to recognize the problem by now
