    I haven't got the blue smoke and mine only does the shaking thing when it's extreme freezing conditions outside. Just a normal cold morning it's fine. It does white smoke on start up most of the time though.

    There must be someone who had this problem and found a solution...

    could it be something to do with glow plugs as its only on start up?

    Almost certain it will be one or more glow plugs down. Unplug them and do a resistance check on each plug with a multimeter set to ohms. Put the red lead on the terminal of the glow plug, and the black lead to a suitable earth point (engine block, battery neg etc). You should see a reading of no more than 1.5 ohms. The usual reading is about 0.7 ish. If the multimeter does nothing, the plug is in open circuit and needs replacing, or if its any more than 1.5 ohms it has a high resistance.
