Thanks all for your reply. I've narrowed it down to just the one issue of the shudder when slowing to a stop.
After playing around with it some more I think I've established what's going on. When I decelerate the car downshifts to 3rd at about 40km/h and holds this gear all the way down until I'm at 2-3km/h. At the very last second it then appears to jump down 2, then 1 simultaneously and I believe that's the shudder I'm feeling as I come to a stop. I believe the gearing pattern is pretty standard, holding the high gear until stopped, but it isn't executed smoothly hence my reason for concern.
I'm going to give the dealer a call tomorrow and hear their thoughts on it. It's a minor issue on what is a great car all round but is bugging me coming from the seamless smooth ride of a manual
I'll post an update here with the outcome
