have changed the plugs, ht leads, and coil problem still there.
the vibration has got worse now from 50 and on thing it may be a drive shaft.
and the starting prob separate.

You haven't curbed it lately and lost a wheel weight have you?
Have you checked the temp sensor and it's connections for the cold start program (which ever sensor/sensors it uses)?
What colour were the plugs (sooty/black all over or just the centre or just the outer threaded part - it makes a difference) when you changed them and were they all the same colour?
