Funny vibration

Here's a tricky one. When I am starting in first gear the whole car rumbles like I am driving over cobblestone. It's only while the clutch is partially engaged and stops as soon as I am off the clutch pedal and accelerating in gear. No vibrations at all in any gear at any speed. I can mostly subdue it if I rev over 2k Rpm while letting out the clutch. It's worse when I try to do gentle starts at about 1500 rpm. Any clues? It's a 5sp 325 with 160k and 70k on the clutch

I also have this same problem and was going to ask about it. Also, I hear a clunk when Im stopped and put it in first or reverse. With my windows down I can hear the rumble is coming from the rear of the car.

Is yours an auto? If so it'll be a completely different story. I moved this conversation to the general forum btw
