Juddering 3 Series clutch

I purchased an ex BMW 320D Tourer a few months ago at 2500 miles.

I have now done about 4500 and from time to time have noticed slight clutch judder, usually when reversing up a slight slope or pulling out of a junction, but this judder does not happen all the time. I guess when it goes into the BMW dealer it will not do it! Is this a known problem?

Probably the dual mass flywheel.
