Started driving the car again today after a week with it sitting on the drive and noticing some juddering or hesitating when accelerating. This seems to happen in all gears. Juddering is also noticable when the revs are at the lower end for the gear I am in.

Suspecting an ignition problem but would sure appreciate some other minds on the problem.

Yeah this is usually an indication of high tension breakdown,
So possibilities are spark plugs coil packs or wires.
Start by pulling the plugs out and checking the tips.
