E46 vibrating at idle sometimes. Just serviced fully, new parts.

Hey, I got E46 recently, and a week ago I got replaced all cooling system (including radiator, water pump, hoses, thermostat etc..)
New brake pads, new rear springs, new rear tyres, headgasked replaced, oil, coolant replaced, spark plugs etc..

It was done by a good service very popular and good quality.
I noticed that sometimes when I am idling in traffic holding clutch down and in 1st gear, I can feel engine vibrating. When I look at gear selector/knob I can see it shaking with about 0.8 second pauses. Sometimes it happens and sometimes not. The RPM are steady and not moving at around 700-800 RPM, and the car accelerates/brakes no problem. And there is no weird sounds in engine.

Would you say it's a problem?
