320d engine vibration

Hi,

I have a 2004 E46 320d.
Today and approx 2 weeks ago as well, when i started the car the engine vibrate violently. But when I revved the engine it went away. Took it for a long drive and no problems. But still its frightening :-). It kinda felt like one of the cylinders wasn't getting diesel but this is a guess.

The last time this happened I took it to local indy BMW garage and had the glow plugs replaced.Also checked the injectors and said all was good. Everything seemed to be running good until it happened again today.

I was also told by same garage that sometimes diesel can get lodged around a cylinder and cause this to happen .... not sure about this ?

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas ...
Appreciate any help,

Regards,
Jack.
