VIBRATES AT IDLE

2002 Volkswagen Passat

Shakes or Wobbles problem

My passat has a problem where it vibrates when in gear when I have my foot on the brake (at Idle), once I accelerate the vibration goes away. Motor mounts have been recently replaced, and the dealership inspected the car and can find nothing wrong. I just want to know what tests of my own I could run to figure out what the problem is so I know what needs to be fixed. I have done some reading and think it could be anything from the balance shaft to misfiring cylinders to wrong idle speed or idle speed control. Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same problem as the person with the

It runs very rough in gear stop at idle.
It seems to run fine otherwise. The mechanic said that
the engine was rough even out of gear but I could not feel it sitting in the car.
