    Does it come and go depending on speed?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    hi its seems to be there once you hit 30mph up and it gets worse and then it can go out of it and drive perfect but its there 80percent of the time had vx wheels onit and still no joy!! and it can be der when you jump into drive and it just cums into it!! it has to be something gone/going as this was never there before this

    Are there any noises between 20mph and 40mph?

    just an idea but DMF causes a bad vibration . can you feel a wobble through the clutch pedal as you reach biting point ??

    i u may have the same probblem as mine..... its not easily detectable, took me and my local garage long enought to figure it out on mine .

    my 1st question is ..... do the vibration/wobble get worse when u try to speed up ? when u are travelling at a steady speed u can feel the vibration/wobble as much ?

    hi crazy-dee ya they get worse the harder you go and when you get to a steady speed 80mph it gos and it feels very lumpy on the road not running smooth

    ok, im certain now that you've got the same issue i had. one of your drive shafts is going to be damaged...... as you accelorate the drive shaft moves in and out of the gear box, which is causing the viration/ wobble.... you cant tell that the drive shaft is damaged when u look at it nor does it look bent or out of shape.......the best option for you would be is to pick up a drive shaft from a scrappy for 25 30quid and replace it....
