Thumping noise from rear

I have recently been experiencing a banging noise from the rear of the car when changing into 1st, 2nd and sometimes reverse, the noise is worse when the car is at a stand still. I took the car to a $tealer today and they came up with the following:

1) the proshaft coupling rubber has perished(or braking up) i presume this is also known as the flex disk?

is this a likely cause? i need some advice as i wanna get this fixed by a local mechanic .

I am also experiencing a lot of vibrations thruough the accelerator pedal , does anyone know what this could be ?

any advice is much appreciated.

1992 BMW 325i SE

Yea sounds right. You can check it yourself. Go under the car, and look just behind the transmission. It's the disc that connects the tranny to the driveshaft.
