340i Engine Vibration

I've noticed that the B58 is not that smooth at low RPMs (under 2000) especially when climbing hills. Anyone else felt this?

I only notice it right after start-up, but why would you climb hills at such a low gear?

Well I can downshift using the paddles, the car doesn't do it by itself. The thing is, it does have enough torque to keep going and even accelerate, but it's just not smooth... I can feel the engine droning.
