    Car Jerks betwen 2000 and 3000 RPM, What's the Issue??

    Hey Guys,
    I have a 2004 330ci, 6 speed manual.
    The car jerks and shakes between 2000 and 3000 RPM, almost every time.
    Above 3000 no problem, but in that range it shakes back and forth.
    Any idea what the issue could be?

    Any help much appreciated.

    While accelerating or during steady speed driving?
    All gears? or just one?
    Warning lights? Fault codes?
