Finally had time to give her to the stealership. Luckily I have extended warranty. They didn't know EXACTLY what the problem was but did whole bunch of things (probably to rip off the warranty company) so finally the problem is fixed. It idles a whooole lot smoother and no jolts:

-Replaced water pump, fill and bleed cooling system <-- why they did this, have no idea. They claimed there was a code diag.
-Swap VANOS solenoids <-- no idea what this is but could've actually been the problem
-Trans Fluid leak: Replace transmission sealing sleeve, replace mech sealing sleeve and trans pan.
-Suspension concern: Replace front thrust rod bushings
