Suggested Solution

Who checked the vehicle for you, was it a diagnostic equipped garage? just plugging a basic code reader in is not going to solve the problem. Sometimes it may seem like a coil pack problem but it could be that that what we call the the coil triggers have failed meaning that the engine control unit is faulty, an egr fault would not normaly present itself until the engine is warm. And there is a software update available from a dealer for egr faults, if you take it in for a small service ie oil and filter they're supposed to do this as part of the service.

Suggested Solution

on mots they check all sorts of things and the car will pass or fail depending on whats wrong if the juddering affects the emissions so it may passand it may not but it may be worth giving the car a service like mrfixit said but and see how things go from there for you
