Ok guys I need help 325ci drive shaft vibrations

Hi so I'm wieland I own 3 BMW a 325ci 2004 a 2997 335i jb4 (weekend) and a e30 daily

Currently working on the 2004 325ci coupe black 5Speed auto.

Bought the car with a blown head gasket fixed it and also the driveshaft was sloppy loose.

So I went in and changed guibo, differential bushings, center support bearing, trans mounts, and driver side half axle it seemed bad to me.

Car runs and drives pretty good. But when accelerating between 2/3 gear around 20 to 30 mph the driveshaft shudders or vibrates and rattles the center console.

I've done my part of reading and can't figure out why, it's killing me.

Drive shaft lines up with factory white dot marking from front half to back half of it. Also the U-joints in the drive shaft are easy to move and not hardened and they don't seem to have any play.

Please guys as you can imagine after poured sweat and countless hours of work and money this darn car still does this annoying crap.

What should I do to cure this??

Any help is very greatly appreciated and hopefully this will also help the next person with this problem.
