It may be the dual mass flywheel that is causing the vibration . Very common

Hi
Yes that is what I was hoping that it wasn't.
If not that may be the crank pulley.
Have you ever heard of the cam shaft being out of balance.
Thanks Malcolm

Crankshafts pulleys , especially with harmonic balance are another cause of vibrations
