n13 engine issues,

Hi, have noticed recently i am getting a shake on idle on my 118i n13 engine.
Starting the car from cold, something shakes on idle. can feel it through your feet when they are just resting on floor. Idle seems a bit weird to.

Also noticed a bit of judder/vibration through clutch pedal.
Do these engines suffer from dmf/ clutch issues. only on 35000 miles warranty just finished,

Are spark plugs fresh?

I have it time after time... My guess is it's when I don't accelerate (/clutch?) confidently enough. But as I probably do it as usual it may be the engine living it's own life (it adapts to weather conditions, or may be drives the alternator as an added burden due to battery condition's imperfect...). I don't know. I had it the other day but I did not have it today.

Why? If because I mentioned it, I didn't mean it was faulty. I meant if the battery wasn't full enough the alternator was engaged constantly (like in good old days when there was no "Brake Energy Regeneration" which is bullshit as it's always been there ) even if the car was not coasting, while otherwise it was not, saving the engine's power. You can check battery condition with the "Auto Start/Stop" function: it won't work if the battery isn't "full enough" (although there can be other reasons for that too).

BP might be fine in Britain, at least. I used it only once with my first car and I could hardly start it right there at the gas station. Never again! It's just a side note. They can't sell shit everywhere, for decades, or can they?
