Angry Juddering - Any ideas?

I have a 52 plate Megane 1.4 16v petrol and occasionally whilst going up through the gears the car judders and feels as if its losing power for a split second - but once its up into 5th gear it stops. It only happens every now and again. Anyone got any ideas before I go to a garage? Regards

Yep,sounds like a coil beginning to go.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
