Unfortunately most of my trips are short disctances at the moment, so I can't tell if its related to the engine not warming up fully.
Are you sure it isn't just the normal diesel vibrations. It is something I don't miss, having moved back to a petrol BMW, from a 3.0d 3-series.

If it is more than that, it could be from the cooler engine. They take some time/mileage to warm up, once ambient temperatures drop.
