    But after everything has warmed up, about 5 or 10 minutes of driving, it goes away. The chatter isn't really bad. Just a little bit of a jiggle when I get going. Just wondering if it's the result of a cheap aftermarket clutch or do factory clutches do this too?

    Mine does that too. Only in first gear, only when it's pretty cold out.

    It's pretty normal. I've had cars that have done it for the first mile or so if it's stop and go on a cold morning.
