Default TOB and shudder

My TOB started making tons of noise at about 2k miles.
The dealer replaced the TOB presure plate and flywheel (maybe clutch plate, too) with no prompting from me -- other then telling them that I didn't like the rettling sound coming from under the dash, or under the car.

I've driven VWs for hundreds or thousands of miles with no clutch or TOB trouble. I'm a little concerned....

I had been in the habit of waiting for the light in first with clutch to the floor. Never a problem in the VWs I've had. Could that have fried the TOB in 2000 miles on my WRX?

Oh yeah, AFTER the dealer put in the new clutch I'm getting a strong shuddering! Never happened with original parts, but from the first engagement of thei new clutch (backing out of the dealer lot) I got the shudders!
