Vibration problem on BMW 1 Series

I have a 2009 BMW 120d M sport with 98,000 miles on the clock from new. The car has developed a severe vibration through the gear lever and clutch pedal. Any suggestions as to the cause?

Probably a failing dual mass flywheel that is in the drivetrain to absorb torque between the engine and protect the transmission.

Great to drive and superbly built. Wide choice of models, improved from 2007 with Efficient Dynamics. 118d is super economical.
