    Dan - are you telling me that my problem with the circle and exclaimation mark is because I am low on brake fluid? I have never added brake fluid. The light is on whether I am in park, reverse, drive, neutral. I bought my car new in dec 2001 and it is a 2002 330I

Vibration when idling in drive

check your pulley's. Sounds like one of them are bad and causing movement which where the vibrations coming from. A friend of mine had the same problem, his was the fan pulley. It could be moved inward and outward a little but enough to cause the engine to vibrate. The bearings were going out. check it out and let us know what you come up with.
