Vibration at idle

I have been trying to find a thread on this but i gave in and will ask for help. I am selling my 540ia and trying to get it trouble free. When I bought it there was a teriable virbration when it was in drive and fully stopped. As soon as the brake was released and it began to roll it smoothed out completly. I changed the motor mounts and it helped a lot(they were pretty bad). How much of a role does the trans mounts play in the vibration isolation or should I look twords the torque converter? I shifts great and never hesitates. The vibration cuts way down when in park. Thanks, I hope everyones mother had a good day!

LOS is an unknown quantity at this point
Have you check your crankcase valve? The air leak can cause vibrations. To find the leak, blow smoke into the lines, any shop can do this, very simple quick test....
