Default Low RPM Vibration

Have a 2011 Golf TDI with an 02Q 6 speed manual transmission. I have noticed a vibration, tied to engine RPMs between idle and up to 2300. Does not get better or worse whether the clutch is depressed or not. I don't feel anything in the shifter, but I wouldn't expect too sense it is cable shifted.
Any thoughts? I don't have a clutch slipping but was thinking maybe DMF.
Car has 198k miles on her with all the factory running gear. Took it to the local dealer to see if they had a better idea and was handed an estimate for the clutch and DMF as well as a transmission with the excuse of since we really can't see anything we would need to pull the transmission first, then see if it is on the flywheel side or not.
Seems like a lot of cabbage to spend without them knowing really what they are looking for. I'm not above pulling the transmission myself, do that plenty on previous vehicles.
Thought I would pick you guys brains on maybe something I missed.
If it is the DMF, should I consider doing the SMF conversion?
