Question about BMW 525
There's a handful of possibilities. You said you checked the coil? There are 6 coils - one per cylinder above each spark plug. Regardless, you say it runs well when driving, it's at idle when it shakes - indicates a vac leak. Check the inlet tube (large rubber hose to intake) for cracks, also check all smaller vac lines in and around throttle body, Inside throttle housing is a fine mesh screen that could be clogging up. Also depending on mileage, you might have the injectors cleaned, they will get gummed up and stick at idle/low speed.
