Well you can try then normal things like check engine/transmission mountings/exhaust?

Flywheel out of balance or warped. I hope I am wrong. Try removing accessory belt and test drive it around the block. See if vibrations are still there. This will eliminate bad pulley bearings of AC compressor, PS pump, Alternator.

There are a number of things that can cause vibration while running, but one tip not mentioned is the CV joints.

On the B5 Passat, Audi A4, A6, if the outer CV joint is bad, it will transmit vibrations through the whole car at idle while stopped in gear if automatic. If you go into neutral or park and the vibrations are gone, it's the CV joints.

Same issue

Did you ever confirm what the problem was?

I'm having the exact same issue on a 2004 Passat TDI with 155k on it.
