Can be many things but sounds like a common DCT transmission issue in the 16-17 MY VT.

What was the reason for the engine and gearbox mount? What was installed different than oem? Was everything installed to spec?

Based on the profile pic it is the DCT 16-17 MY.

The grill and the wheels are 16-17 MY and auto was mentioned so it must be a DCT car. Plus only the DCT does this not the 13-15 auto. :)

Thanks, I saw the outer grill, but thought it was plastidipped or painted. I looked at the hood for vents but just couldn't verify, just like the wheels. I just cant make a positive ID on them. Your eye is way better than mine.

There is the off chance this stuff was swapped from a 16-17 MY VT but highly unlikely due to the description of the issue and knowing the common issues with the car. Pics aside the issue itself screams 16-17 MY DCT.

I could have answered the next set of questions the OP has in my initial reply before they ask them but I'll be courteous and let them ask first. Threads with only a few posts are no fun. :)

The issue only in first gear, once changed to second no vibrations. check with few mechanics they didn't find the exact issue. shared the video link here

Happens to me as well, same model year and DCT. Just the nature of the car :)
