Exclamation My 2001 e46 shakes terribly

I have a 2001 BMW 330ci and now the car shakes really really bad. The car is a Manual transmission. When I put it in first gear and rev accelerate it shake really bad between 1900 and 3200 Rpms, it also sounds like something it rattling under the armrest. This also happens In second and some of third gear. I'm having someone look at it in a few days, but wha could be the problem?
