Yesterday night had to get the car towed because a big vibration started while running on the highway.
Looks like it comes from the front, moving the hole car from underneath sideways very strongly, going around 2000revs.
 10 minutes after we started travelling I noticed as if the road got rough, at first I thought it was the the road, but I tried to disengage the gears and the engine and everything was ok,  the vibration started again when I engaged gear again at around 110kms/h.
I was with my hole family 150 kms from home, so decided to call the assurance company.
I had noticed something weard 14.000kms ago when they changed the timing belt and a broken rubber cup in transmission, the inside one next to the engine (could it be something around there?)
At first, a year a go, wasnt something noticebal, a very little vibration when goin up hills, but its being getting worse until yesterday.
Ive being reading the forum, but didnt find something exactly the same, I need a quick advise, because they are now towing the car to the garage, and they tell me they dont know what can be...
Im shure you know a lot more about our car then the people in the garage here in Spain ;)
Thanks everyone, lets see what happens...I really like my Gal and is only 145.000kms old!!

So does it happen when just coasting in neutral aswell or is it just when in gear? Do you get any noises?

Could be several things,buckled wheel,distorted tyres,dmf failing drive shaft issue etc need a bit more info of exactly when it happens.

It happens in gear, when the car goes over 90 kms/h moreless, when not, the engine goes smoothly, never heard noises at all, in gear or not.

The guy in the garage tells me the two half shafts have to be replaced, that means 570 euros, and pray to solve the problem for ever...
What do you think?

They changed both half shafts and paid, was a shame not to see the old ones, because they changed the inside rubber covers a year a go, and everything was perfect for them, then.
Lets see if they solved the problem.
Thanks everyone.
