330d vibration under hard acceleration

My car has picked up a strange vibration noticeable only under hard acceleration in the higher gears on the peak torque curve of the engine.

I suspected the propshaft rubber couplings but neither look that bad. The rear has some cracks but im not sure its bad enough to cause a problem?

Could it be the prop centre bearing?

During normal driving its absolutely fine. The car has been remapped so there is plenty of torque which i suspect exaggerates the issue

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Thanks

There's a recall for the propshaft rubber coupling at the moment. I have a 330d LCI which is going in next week for the recall

Interesting... Do you have any further details for this (ideally the recall doc if possible?), I own an LCI 330D E92 and a pre LCI 330D E92, wondering if either of mine are affected. Thanks

From the letter I received from BMW
"Checking and replacing the flexible disc, if required - Code 00263x0100"
Mine is a 2011 330d e93 LCI.
