Since my car was in for one last "pre-warranty-expiration" tune-up, I put it down as an issue, but the service tech wrote it off as normal for our cars (he had a pretty lengthy explanation). It doesn't seem to cause any issues actually moving (the car still moves smoothly).
yes, I have the same thing as well and have taken it like you. The clutch shudders when i pull into my garage and at low RPM. Despite the slight shudder, It moves fine and the clutch feels good. The garage being a closed space also amplifies the sound so it is more noticeable.

Has anyone noticed that it is more pronounced with certain tunes? When I was stage 2+ Linear throttle I noticed it a lot more, but since switching to stage 1+ stock throttle it is much less. Could it be a throttle issue?
