Hi, when a judder appears on take of it usually means the splined shaft that the clutch plate fits on is dry or has some surface rust on it, if the car stands idle a lot of time this is probably your problem, on older cars there is sometimes a cut out in the bell housing where you can acces the thrust bearing, sometimes a small amount of lubricant can be applied directly to the centre of the shaft while somebody pumps the clutch pedal,and it may do the job, otherwise it is a gearbox out job and take it from there, hope this helps, if i can help any more do not hesitate to ask, thanks for using fixya

My car wont start when cold outside could this be the problem of a failing fuel pump

More likely the battery, try starting the car with no electrics running (interior light, fans, wipers etc.) when it fires rev it up a few times and let it idle for a bit before pulling away if it runs fine after this you can use you electrics as normal . if its an auto pull away slowly if its a manual pull away with more revs than normal but very slowly engage the clutch.

My 1997 Audi a3 is juddering when I change gears and it's low revs

Hi Kristopher, A shudder from the manual transmission is usually caused from a defective part in the clutch assembly. It could be caused by uneven wear of the pressure plate (clutch cover) or wear on the clutch plate boss (The center of the clutch plate with the springs or rubbers which absorb the torque when releasing the pedal) A shudder can be generated from a defective engine or gear box mount, worn CV joints or spiders or a loose bell housing. Start with the last suggestion and work backwards as the clutch replacement will require the most work. If the clutch assembly has been replaced recently, and the parts available are of the same quality we receive where I am, you will need to do the job over. Regards John

New clutch has been fitted...biting point is high, hard to get used to and judders sometimes when im trying to pull away

Have it readjusted by whoever installed it for you. Sounds like they replaced clutch but didn't adjust properly.

It sounds as if a couple things may be at play: one, wearing clutch, Two; the clutch pressure plate springs have become fatiqued not tranferring power as they should allowing the clutch to jump apart. It would appear you should replace both the clutch and pressure plate.
I hope this may have assisted,
