Transmission problems?

I have a 1998 BMW 540i 6-speed manual. Every-time i step hard on the gas

pedal in first or second gear the car has a viscous vibration coming from the arm

rest area. I looked underneath the car and noticed when i grab onto the

drive-shaft (closest to the tranny side) There's some play that goes all the way

into the transmission. Wondering if anyone has had a similar issue or has some

ideas on what it could be? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks
