Hi..there..sorry for the delay..

To me going by description id say the first places/areas to check would be the engine/transmission mounts..if one of them has failed rubber parts of the mount has split this can cause alot of vibration to be felt within the car/or throuhg the that certainly would be one area to would be for possible dmf problems..but at this stage id say as above would be first things to be checked...
